Unknown person(s) detonated an Improvised Explosive Device at a Vietnam War Memorial. The cross, donated to the city in 1972, sustained some damage but is still standing.
The cross was also vandalized last May by someone who wrote the word “Remove” on it. A prominent atheist group has been trying to force the community to take the cross down, claiming it “forces Christianity” on unwilling citizens.
