NATICK (CBS) – A piece of a statue that was stolen from a veteran’s memorial has been replaced.

A helmet was taken from atop the Fallen Soldier’s Memorial at the Natick VFW earlier this month.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Carl Stevens reports

There’s been a public plea for help, but the helmet has not been found.

A young veteran came into the post this week looking to join the VFW and offered his helmet as a replacement.

“This young fella come in and there was the helmet. A member of the post went out there and reinforced it. If they wanted to take this one, they’d probably have to take the whole rifle and all,” 90-year-old VFW member Harry Seaholm told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Friday.

“We’re all pleased as punch!”
