Military Uniforms Stolen from Fallen Marine

OMAHA (KPTM)- For the second time in her life, Tiffany Bock has opened up the door to heartache. "It was the worst moment in my life," said Bock. "I don't even remember anything from that day. I'm still numb from the Marine's coming to my door."

Bock's husband, Staff Sergeant Michael Bock was killed while serving in Afghanistan in 2010. 

In September of that year, Tiffany decided to move some of his things to storage. It was too painful for her to look. "Every time I tried to open a box, I end up crying. It's still too hard," said Tiffany.

Last week, Tiffany said she got a phone call that someone had broken into her storage unit. "Low and behold, I open the door and there's a huge spot right here, right where it was," said Tiffany. 

She said the lock was completely cut in half. "It just sickened me to know that someone like that has things that are so special that means so much to me," said Tiffany.

Bock's Marine fatigues and Marine "Dress Blues" were stolen. "Tell her how your daddy was," said Tiffany to her son Xander. "Really great," said Xander with a smile.

Xander is six years old. His father died when he was three, and Tiffany said she planned on passing down the gear to Xander. "He's only got vague memories," said Tiffany.

She said the people that took her husband's things probably didn't know who they belonged to. "They probably saw his military gear and saw dollar signs and thought, wow, we can sell this and make a lot of money."

Tiffany said she hopes to get back the uniforms, so she can focus on what she has left of her husband, not what she is missing.
