Holding a tattered POW/MIA flag in his hands, Korean War veteran Bob Dumas can not hide the disgust at the vandals who damaged it.
"Desecrating a flag that represents so much to the families is unbelievable," said Dumas, 81, of Canterbury.
For years, the POW/MIA flag flew on the flag pole outside the Plainfield Post Office, until vandals got a hold of it.
"This happened sometime during the night Tuesday night into Wednesday," said Plainfield Deputy Police Chief Michael Surprenant.
Vandals removed the flag, cut deliberate holes in it with a knife and then ran it back up the flag pole, police said.
Dumas points out where someone tried to cut the word "Not" out of the phrase "You Are Not Forgotten" -- meaningful words for veterans and the families of the missing.

Liberals. Dumb ass kids. Same thing. This kind of thing leaves me speechless.
So many of the leftist scum who infest this nation DESERVE to live in a failed marxist state. Sadly, we may be dragged down into that h#ll with them...
The fact that the didn’t just slash it and put it back, but took the time to try to cut on the word “not” seems to suggest to me that it was a planned event not just some bored kids riding around.
True enough. Inside job from most aspects. They wanted attention...so they got it. Teenage kids don’t waste time for something like this.
People taught respect, sacrifice, and REAL American History would never do something like this.
The same type of mentality that tears down the memorial crosses of the war dead.
Here behind the enemy lines in MD it would be the old guy sliced up and hung back on the flag pole...Especially if he ventured into his neighborhood McDonald's...
This vandalism brought to you by people stuck in eternal adolescence.
These reports just make me want to work harder for the troops...after some a** kicking!
Did I really say that? YUP!
