Reward offered after vandals deface Connecticut Veterans Memorial – Boston News, Weather, Sports

WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP) – A memorial in Wallingford honoring local Vietnam veterans was the target of two acts of vandalism, police said.

Recently, a swastika was found spray-painted on the names of veterans at the Dutton Park memorial, police told WTIC-TV. This incident was followed by another in which vandals painted the word “die” on one side and a depiction of male genitalia on the other.

Authorities have offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the vandals.

“The deliberate and shameful attack on the memory of these heroes will not be tolerated, even with the hateful rhetoric that members of the Wallingford community have been subjected to,” Police Commissioner John Ventura said in a statement Friday.
