Traveling Wall That Heals Vandalized
By Don Doyle

    

One of the traveling Memorial Walls That Heals was recently given a permanent home in John’s Creek, Georgia. The John’s Creek Veterans Association has been working on the set up of the permanent memorial since last July, and was going to have a Grand Opening celebration on March 28, 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic put the kibosh on that with the social distancing and stay at home requirements that were necessary to help control the spread of this deadly virus.

     

The Association was shocked recently to find that vandals had keyed about half of the panels of the installation and had taken a hammer to some of the other panels. Such behavior is beyond contempt. No matter the “reason” of self-righteous bravado vandals may give for their actions, the truth is that they are self-centered, insensitive cowards. These actions were done under cover of night. No courage there. One could imagine all kinds of righteous punishments for such actions.

I am licensed to carry and I would be happy to come set up a tent and guard the Wall for one week. I will assure you that it would not be damaged during my watch! I am sure there are other volunteers to do the same!

John, Charlene, Barbara. I believe all physically and mentally capable individuals should serve in the military for at least 2 years active service. Also, I believe anyone serving in a State position or a Federal position, elected or appointed should have served 2 yrs. active duty.

I like to try to give back what this gave me.

I couldn't agree with these comments more! I absolutely agree the vandals should be forced to serve military time until they have the same understanding and gain some respect. Jail is to easy these days. They are treated like babies. My father was a Vietnam Veteran. His name was Nicholas Clericuzio if any soldiers knew him I'd love to hear any stories you might have. My email is Tiffanyfried@gmail.com . He passed away 9/5/93 unfortunately. I miss him so very much. God bless you all. I was coming on here to see if the traveling wall was coming to Long Island New York at all. Hopes I will see it one day. Life has been difficult lately and now I was involved in a bad multi car accident and doesn't seem that much can be done for me and I'm just left with a bunch of injuries and no vehicle... so I'm praying for something good because I won't even be able to get treatment soon within a car. My job was lost due to Covid. So I'm just trying to figure everything out as I need to make sure our house is taken care of before anything else. I wish my Dad was still here. When I see these acts of viscousness it angers me because so many of us are struggling and work our butts off being good people and helping others in society. Then you get these low-life's who live off everyone else and don't participate in society and hurt innocent people and cause damage and sometimes are purely evil but yet they are treated with a pat on the back and no repercussions. They have NO FEAR! NO CONSEQUENCES! This is the biggest problem! I'm so deeply sorry for our men and woman who gave and risk their life's for our great country. I truly thank you, respect you and pray for you.

We were honored to have the Traveling Wall in Benson, AZ this last weekend. I was overwhelmed with emotions when looking and reading about the sacrifices of the people who served for our great Nation. Thank you to all of you who have served or are still serving our Great Nation.

Can't expect respect from A LOT of today's youth...they haven't been taught to respect themselves how are we to expect that they would respect anything.

I agree wholeheartedly with you Charlene. Actually, I concur with you all. I'm bubbling to a boil. How despicable, disrespectful, degrading and lowdown. In the innocence and prime of his life my brother died on Vietnam's soil. My husband was psychologically and emotionally scarred and died from complications of Agent Orange.

     

Charlene Scruggs, 5/10/20

At some point and possibly through mimicking behavior and attitude for our country of some in higher offices the honor of our nation has crumbled.  They have no reverence, respect and love for the freedom secured by many whom have made our country free. If found these destroyers should be rightfully punished by deploying them to a third world country. Better yet, force enlist them into our military and insure they get the "proper" treatment and experiences accordingly.

My husband fought for your freedom.  I hope you get caught and put in a hell hole in military prison and make f*** boys out of all you f******.

A couple of weeks ago I parked at Walmart in Trussville, AL and while I was inside someone pushed a shopping cart into the side of my new vehicle. I made them check the cameras and they said that the person that did it looked at the front and then walked to the back before rolling the cart into the side. I have a Special Forces plate on the front and a retired Army license plate on the the rear. Walmart paid for the damage but if I had seen the person I would have made sure they paid dearly. I didn't know that we had those kind in the area but obviously they are all around us.

This is an example of the cowardice that was displayed by the draft dodgers and anti-american protesters during the Vietnam war itself. I vividly remember our flight home into Seattle WA at 0300 just to avoid the protesters. We were told not to wear any uniforms in the airport - only civilian clothes. Military standby flight status was given the lowest priority. It took me 3 days to get on a flight home. None of us asked for the war but we proudly served. Welcome home brothers.

And we fought for your freedoms WTF?

Let's get a reward fund up for the capture of these vandals.

If caught maybe they should be drafted into military service and no matter they way they act or perform not be given a discharge until they get the knowing and feeling how it is to serve. Put into military action in a combat zone as well to see what all the veterans that gave their life for serving our country. Being put into prison is too lenient of a sentence for their actions.
