"For those who missed the Monday evening news, the Tahoma Cemetery was vandalized presumably, over this past weekend.
Eleven of the plaques from the Memorial Walk, behind the berm at the main flag pole, were removed, or damaged during removal. The USSVI memorial was untouched, but the WWII plaque is MIA.
While I was there, checking out the damage, I stopped to talk to the cemetery director. Jim reports that police have dusted for prints, but do not expect to find the perpetrators using that approach. The cemetery will contact each organization affected, for details, and replace the plaques as soon as possible. No donations are being requested at this time.
I will update you all as information becomes available."
