Iraq War Memorial vandalized, but now restored and ready for re-dedication

"The Iraq War Memorial near Mt. Pleasant, Michigan was vandalized. Someone torched the flag, bent the flag pole over, tore up the flowers left by the families for their loved ones, and caused "other destruction". But I received the following email informing me that everything has been repaired and the memorial is ready for re-dedication on September 9, 2007. Thanks to all who contributed to the restoration of this memorial. This was not considered a hate crime, but an anti-war. (9 and 10 News)

Police say that they don't believe that it was a 'hate crime', merely an 'anti-war crime'." Yeah, right.

The Iraq war memorial that was vandalized twice in July has been restored. The flag pole has been replaced, the flags have been raised, and new plants will be planted before the re-dedication of the memorial on September 9, 2007. The re-dedication will take place at the site on 9/9 @ 2:00 p.m. at Island Park, 331 N. Main Street, Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.

There will be a placement of a wreath, a few words will be spoken by Justin Ellsworth's parents, and new flags will be raised (the U.S. flag is one that has flown over the Capital in D.C.).

All are welcome to attend in honoring our fallen heroes.

Note: The Patriot Guard has been contacted to see if they are available to attend.

  1. Who gets to say that it isn’t a hate crime, the Police??? I thought that decision was up to the D.A? Oh, I forgot, hate crimes against generic Americans or against America is OK. Sure!!!
