This act of cowardice is truly despicable. I wish all those who participated in this heinous activity would be caught and have their names and pictures published prominently. There should be zero tolerance for this kind of disrespect.
Whoever did the vandalism should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If convicted, they should spend their time working in a veterans mental health center cleaning up after incontinent patients. That would be just punishment
Memorials to veterans in a Los Angeles neighborhood and a town in Kentucky, as well as a Civil War veterans cemetery in Virginia, were damaged as the nation prepares to mark Memorial Day, officials said.
A Vietnam War memorial in the Venice area of Los Angeles has been extensively defaced by graffiti. The vandalism occurred sometime during the past week, KCAL/KCBS-TV (http://cbsloc.al/1RAa3mg) reported. The homespun memorial painted on a block-long wall on Pacific Avenue lists the names of American service members missing in action or otherwise unaccounted for in Southeast Asia.
News of the vandalism came as another veterans-related memorial was reported damaged in Henderson, Kentucky. Police say a Memorial Day cross display there that honors the names of 5,000 veterans of conflicts dating back to the Revolutionary War has been damaged by a driver who plowed through the crosses early Saturday.
In Virginia, the Petersburg National Battlefield has apparently has been looted, the National Park Service said. Numerous excavations were found at the Civil War battlefield last week, Jeffrey Olson, and agency spokesman, said in a news release Friday. Petersburg National Battlefield is a 2,700-acre park marks where more than 1,000 Union and Confederate soldiers died fighting during the Siege of Petersburg 151 years ago.
And those who served ARE special. They (we) gave up a good portion of time, youth, family and careers to defend this country, putting aside any private beliefs and personal opinions to represent the United States on the world stage, even if it means paying the ultimate price.
Serving is about looking beyond yourself. And that’s hard for people to understand in these days of selfies and “what can you do for me?”
