Veterans' commemorative park desecrated          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

My name is Tracy Jackson and I am the street superintendent for the city of Lincoln. Most of all I am a VETERAN, and what took place at All Veterans Park last night makes me sick. A couple of young men tore down five flagpoles and stole four flags.

Those things can be repaired or replaced, but to dishonor the veterans of this county cannot be repaired or replaced from these young men.

I just hope that in time they are caught and prosecuted.

Most of all I hope that one of their parents is a veteran. I know then that justice will be done.

Tracy Jackson
