Graffiti scrubbed off of veterans’ memorial - Brattleboro Reformer

Keeping faith with residents and the memory of the town’s war dead, the Town of Brattleboro ordered municipal workers to remove graffiti from the local war memorial.

""Righting a wrong," Select Board Chairman Tim Wessel wrote on Facebook, sharing a photograph of the cleaning. The monument is on the Common on Park Place, where annual Memorial Day ceremonies are held near the Brattleboro Retreat and courthouse. Panels facing the street feature names of Brattleboro citizens who died in World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Graffiti spray painted on the backside of the panels read: "+65. POCs Lives Matter Too." POC is used as an abbreviation for people of color."
