Memorial Day in the U.S. always has its haters.

This year so far, several sites have been vandalized.

Defacing, looting and general havoc.

I guess some people have a lot to prove.


A national disgrace: Fury as vandals and looters desecrate veterans graveyards and historic battlefields across three states on Memorial Day weekend


A Vietnam War memorial in the Venice area of Los Angeles has been extensively defaced by graffiti

In Kentucky, a driver deliberately drove across grave sites marked by white wooden crosses

Looters ripped up parts of Virginia's Petersburg National Battlefield in an apparent search for relics


Memorials to veterans in a Los Angeles neighborhood and a town in Kentucky, as well as a Civil War veterans cemetery in Virginia, were damaged as the nation prepares to mark Memorial Day, officials said.

A Vietnam War memorial in the Venice area of Los Angeles has been extensively defaced by graffiti.

The vandalism occurred sometime during the past week, KCAL/KCBS-TV reported.

The homespun memorial painted on a block-long wall on Pacific Avenue lists the names of American service members missing in action or otherwise unaccounted for in Southeast Asia.

Is it the #BLM or the damned Dems?? Probably both!!

We get assholes in the UK who do this too. Kids and drunken youths usually. Vietnam isn't the proudest moment in US military history, but the serving men who fought or died over there didn't start it.

Defacing their graves and memorials is an insult to the Everyman.

It's just very sad & sick.
How would these disrespectful idiots feel if their own families graves were desecrated? Then again, maybe they would do it themselves.

Exactly, this is ridiculous. The people that got sent over had nothing to do with it.

Drafted and sent by force into a war zone with stupid rules that ensure they die, and then make it so half hearted that all those lives were wasted for no reason at all......

God, that's just foul.

Whatever beef these idiots may have means absolutely nothing when they behave this way.

Scumbags.

Yeah, some people enjoy knocking over any gravestones at all and vandalising the memorials.

Thoughtless malice and disrespect :dn

What about their families? Maybe they didn't support the war, might have even protested but loved their family member. That desecration to them is uncalled for, short sighted and selfish.

As punishment how about we drop these vandals/looters into ISIS territory and have the Kurds conscript them into their military just to see if they were brave enough for war.

Yeah 'protesting' against a war that ended last century points to it being done by idiots who can't see past their own moment.

I'll go along with that.

I'm not sure I'd be able to restrain myself were I to run across someone(s) doing something like that.

To call it disrespectful would be an understatement.

Can you imagine wanting to spend a moment with a brother, sister, a child you've not seen since the 60's, who died in a faraway land for a cause that was murky at best, and find something like has been described here?

I can't even begin to imagine the anguish.

I really hope those little bastards who do things of this nature are proud of themselves...because no one else, outside of their little echo chamber of a life, is.

One day, karma will come calling...and she won't be happy. This life or the next.

I bet these were defaced by Your typical liberal racist.

You don't mess with the dead. Its that simple. The vandals lives now have been ruined forever. Many, if not all of them will somehow end up with a life long battle of inner shame. Also, the chances of them being confined in prison is very real, not that they got caught destroying the grave sites, but other evil acts. No one escapes punishment when it comes messing around with the dead Veterans or any buried soul.

I hope one of them will read this, you guys are now cursed forever.

The sad irony of this kind of stupid and frankly evil behavious is that those desecrating sites like these (we have them over here in the UK as well) is that they are desecrating the memory of those whom fought and layed down there lives so that they could be born, it is thankless and rotten to say the least and those that commit this kind of behavior need both re-education and stern punishment as a deterrant but it will never stop, the looting of battle field's is also not that uncommon especially in the Ebay Age were anything can be sold online.
Personally I have no patience for anyone that act's like this but it is true that universally they tend to be of low intellectual capability.
