MILFORD - Milford residents are asking the public for help tonight after a local soldier allegedly discovered his storage unit had been ransacked and half of his items were stolen.

Some of the soldier's Jonathan Law High School classmates say they have stepped up to help by collecting donations for him.

The soldier, who graduated from the high school in 2000, returned to the U.S. from deployment in Afghanistan on Monday.
