New Haven (WTNH) – Veterans are outraged that a war memorial in New Haven has been vandalized.

The Vietnam War Memorial at Long Wharf was spray painted with the threatening words “Kill whites MS 13.”

Seeing this just crushed the veterans we spoke to. The names on that wall that are covered in paint, are the names of those who fought and died for this country in the Vietnam War. Tonight, police are investigating whether this is the work of a violent street gang, but the veterans we spoke to, say whoever they are, aren’t as tough as they might think.

“This irks me. This hurts me deep to my heart,” Vietnam Veteran Emery Linton Sr. said.

Linton looked in disgust at the graffiti covering New Haven County’s Vietnam War Memorial at Long Wharf.

  1. i am a disabled vet who served in the marines and this is really heartbreaking . what really angers me is that we cant secure our borders from these criminal illegal aliens. they have the nerve to vandalize the Vietnam vet war memorial that really makes me heart sicked. when will our government wake up and face what we call reality ? its truly a shame that American citizens come second to criminal illegal aliens. when will it end? i have complete respect for those who come over legally and adapt to our culture and customs , obey the law and learn the language and simulate into society. but the gangs and the drug smugglers from south of the border need to be deported. i am hopeful someday that that we stop allowing this chaos to continue. i really hope that someday we will have a safe and secure nation . i really hope that our congress hears of what happened to the war memorial and puts a stop to this corruption caused by illegal alien gangs and other criminal who cross illegally. i just want law and order fair and balanced. i support those who come legally like the immigrants who came to Ellis island. but those who come illegally and demand certain rights and benefits is wrong and should be stopped. all i ask is that they come legally is that unreasonable ?
