Vandalism, graffiti also destruction of a light fixture at one of the 14 foot tall pylons (with the names of the KIA/MIA’s) has been reported. It is evident some people have no respect for the Memorial. We have asked people taking pictures of children standing on-top the fountain, or sitting on the base of the uniformed statues to PLEASE REFRAIN FROM DOING SO. We have had to clean left over lunch debris (French fries, BB`Q, hamburger wrappers, etc. from the entire site. Skate-board and soccer ball kickers continue to use the memorial as a playground.
If you see any of the above, Please call the Mint Hill Police Dept. (704) 545-1085
