Vandals target Korean War Memorial
PENN'S LANDING - December 11, 2011 (WPVI) -- For the third December in a row, custodian James Moran says he's picking up the pieces by the war memorials at Penn's Landing.
This afternoon he called police after discovering five wreaths destroyed. They were placed by the Korean War Memorial on Veterans Day.
"We have young men and women dying in Afghanistan and Iraq for our flag; it's a disgrace this goes on every single year," Moran said.

Moran is a custodian for the Vietnam Memorial, but also keeps an eye on the nearby Korean War and Beirut memorials. He predicts wreaths by the other two will soon be hit, as has been the pattern for the last two years.

It’s all part of the communist/socialist plan.
Kill the family, kill God, kill national pride, kill all veterans and symbols of them.

This is beyond disgusting.
Either get surveillance cameras or ask your local Veterans to do guard duty.
And when you catch the punks, beat the hell out of them.

I've visited that Memorial a couple of times, it is nearby the Society Hill Sheraton. It is breathtaking. My father fought in the Korean War and is a man of little emotion but when I showed him photos of the tribute, he was thankful. And no this. These clowns need to be flogged.
