0

Boston Police are investigating the vandalism of a war memorial in the Fenway neighborhood. The Vietnam War Memorial, located near the James P. Kelleher Rose Garden in Veterans Memorial Park, has been marred with red paint. A report from Boston 311 shows that the painting covered many names on the three columns of the memorial. In addition to the police, Boston Veterans Services Commissioner Robert Santiago was at the vandalized memorial on Friday morning. “I don’t know what’s going on in people’s heads, but they must know that this is sacred land,” he said. “It’s a sacred land with the service members whose names are encrusted in Vietnam, the Korean memorial behind me and the WWII memorial behind you. Hey, I sacrificed something.” The crews were able to wash off some of the red paint but some of the white paint in the engraved names was also removed. Affected names will be repainted.
