“American Legion cannon stolen in Yelm, veterans hope for safe return”

From KCPQ-13, Seattle:

“It’s hand-forged and weighs 250 pounds, but neither the size nor weight of the recently stolen cannon that once sat in front of American Legion Post 164 is what makes it special.”

“The cannon – which was only unveiled a few weeks ago – was a gift from the folks at Norse West Viking Festival. The cannon was made with proceeds from an event in 2020, and had been placed prominently near the front of the American Legion in Yelm as a memorial to veterans.”

“A police report was filed with the Yelm Police Department, but there’s some hope that the thief – or thieves – will return the cannon.

“‘Bring it back. We don’t judge. We’ll sit down and make a burger, maybe have a drink with you. At the end of the day we just want you to bring it back, do the right thing.'”
