Just a few days before Memorial Day, the Vietnam War Memorial on Morrissey Boulevard was vandalized. Graffiti, including a swastika, was written on the memorial, a number of plants were torn out of the ground and flags were ripped down and thrown into a wooded area, according to State Police. UMass Boston police officers and State Troopers are actively investigating.
Anyone with information about this is encouraged to reach out to the State Police at 617-740-7710.
This is the second time in the past year this monument has been vandalized.
