Some local veterans will have to put their fundraising efforts on hold, all because of some thieves.Last week, someone broke into the American Legion post 644 in Channelview and stole the new air conditioners. That American Legion routinely holds benefits to help organizations in the community. But because the post members don't have the money to replace the AC units, fundraising efforts are on hold.

The American Legion post also opens its doors to families who have lost their homes after a fire. That's something members won't be doing until they find a way to keep the building cool.
