Veterans Memorial Cannon Vandalized



On the morning of December 26th while working to finishing up the Veterans Memorial before snow flies again, the Veteran Service Officer of Rehoboth Jake Kramer noticed around 8:35 AM that the Howitzer was vandalized with a “Peace Sing” symbol on one side and “Peace On Earth” on the other side.

Last year a Boy Scout wanting to earn his Eagle Scout badge scraped, sanded and repainted this howitzer and he did an Outstanding job! This past fall another Boy Scout wanted to earn his eagle badge by constructing a final resting place for this howitzer on a nice concrete pad with 6 concrete pads for future granite benches. Luckily enough, that the prankster used a latex base paint and with the barrel being cold, depending upon the time when this prankster did his graffiti, the Veteran Agent was able to scrub and wash off all of the graffiti to bring the howitzer back to the way it looked prior to this vandalism of town property.
