Veteran’s dog tags stolen again

A set of dog tags inscribed with Timothy Brown’s name were stolen sometime in the last month from his memorial in Veterans Memorial Park, Cedar Springs.

The city and family of Timothy Brown would like them returned. According to City Manager Christine Burns, they can be dropped off at City Hall, after hours, in the drop box, with no questions asked. The family has placed another set on the memorial, but would like the other set returned.

Timmy, as he was affectionately called, was the son of Tim and Cindy Brown of Nelson Township, and brother to Stevie. He grew up in Cedar Springs and graduated from Cedar Springs High School in 2002, and in 2003, joined the Michigan National Guard. On November 4, 2005, while engaged in combat operations in Habbaniyah, Iraq, Timmy was killed when a land mine detonated near his humvee.

A monument for Timmy from the Fallen Heroes Memorial Foundation was erected in Veterans Memorial Park in the fall of 2010. His dog tags were stolen within a week of it going up, and later returned. It is hoped that the set recently stolen will be returned also.
