To the Editor:
I’ve been in the scrap metal and recycling business for over 60 years. I did not buy the veterans’ grave markets on purpose. They were not seen until after the load was dumped and the person selling them was already gone.
I was turning them into the sheriff as required by law. I also told him whose load they came from. We follow the laws that the State of Kentucky has set for all recycling and scrap dealers.
For all the people who think they know what they’re talking about, I’ve never been so desperate for money that I need to buy stolen grave markers or anything stolen.
