Skip to comments.Vietnam Memorial Wall Defaced This Weekend (September 7-9, 2007)

Mrs. Trooprally called me this evening to tell me that she and her husband, as well as Concretebob, saw damage along almost the entire length of the Vietnam Memorial Wall. They found this damage this morning, when they walked through the area before participating in the September 11th Freedom Walk.
Concretebob was told by a National Park Service employee that the damage was done on Friday night. There was no police report taken or written about the vandalism, apparently. And the damage was still very much there today.
Here are a few of the photos that Mrs. Trooprally took this morning...
This first one is not so noticeable, but as they walked into the center, it got worse.
It looks like the person who did this walked along The Wall with some type of container, perhaps hidden at their side so that they could squirt the oily substance without being caught in the act.
The names along the lower part of The Wall appear to have taken the brunt of the damage.
Because of the reflective nature of The Wall, Mrs. Trooprally had a tough time capturing the extent of the damage. Mr. Trooprally said that the oily substance has discolored the shiny stone, but that it has been absorbed into the more porous area where the names are etched into The Wall.
This damage was brought to you by... anti-American libs.
I wanted to say, “can’t believe this”.
However, I can!
The other options... I'm not going to say. Now.
I'll leave those to the watering of the roots of the tree of liberty.
This sort of thing is usually done by someone who is mentally unbalanced, or given to leftwingnut thoughts.
They forgot their matches....
I have never seen evidence of competence in D.C. They should contact the grounds keepers at the L.D.S temple in Salt Lake City . They have got to be among the most experienced graffiti removers in history .
I suggest we check Kos and DU. I suspect someone over there would brag about it.
or youtube. they might just be that stupid.
You should have been paying attention in 1973.
And, as to the comment about nothing having been reported - anyone really surprised about that?
If they want a war.....well........
Look like the feces is about to hit the air circulator.
I’ve had with these folks,,I’m done
“There but for the grace of God go I,” ‘tis said.
The Right’s secret weapon—prayer and repentance and conscience. The Left has nothing but lies and deception and instant shallow gratification, nothing fulfilling to offer and they know it deep down.
Those cheap laughs of somebody out there are masks for the hollow, desperate lives such folks are living, medicated by anything that dulls the conscience to numbness.
What meaning! What a legacy! To soil someone else’s hallowed ground.
May they not sleep at night until they repent.
And may we not sleep comfortably until we achieve prosecution and redress.
Would it be possible to get a list of the full names and dates of all of the names that were desecrated?
This is going to make 9/15 real interesting.
BTW didn't they have the walk for FReedom in DC today. I thought I saw one of the Fox & FRiends guys as the MC during it.
