    Vandals Target Lincoln Park Memorial
    Thieves Saw Off Pieces Of Statue Dedicated To Soldier

    POSTED: Tuesday, January 26, 2010
    UPDATED: 11:37 pm EST January 26, 2010
    LINCOLN PARK, Mich. -- Police in Lincoln Park are searching for vandals who destroyed a statue dedicated to a soldier who lost his life in Iraq.

    All that remains of the statue in Veteran’s Park is a pair of bronze boots. The rest of the memorial has been pried away.

    The memorial was built about eight months ago for Sgt. Craig Frank, a member of the Michigan National Guard who died in Iraq in 2004.

    According to the Fallen Hero Memorial Foundation, the community raised thousands of dollars in record time to build the memorial.

    If you have any information about the vandals, contact Lincoln Park Police.

    If you’d like to make a donation, send it to VFW Post 552 in Lincoln Park. You can also call 313-383-4505.

    Probably took it for the metal. I'd tell you how I feel about this but it's a family friendly site.

    This is disgusting. I hope the vandals get caught, but it's not likely.

    Just sickening that someone would do this to a soldier's memorial.

    I was at the dedication of that memorial. I am PO'ed. The Bas****s did the same to another fallen hero who was a member of our church. What is this world comming to. They should put them in the front of the convoy as IED fodder.

    Sorry for my anger. My cousin was honored on the same day he was KIA in the IaDrang valley Vietnam See http://books.google.com/books?id=WBZ...age&q=&f=false

    I also lost an uncle during WWII. I will happly stand guard duty at the memorial.

    Use the boots that are left to kick their butts over their ears.

    This is absolutely freakin disgusting!!! How low of a scumbag do you have to be to destroy something like that? I hope they find WHATEVER did that and makes them pay dearly, both financially and physically.

    I hope that a veterans group catches the scumbags and duct tapes them to the cannon in front of the VFW.
