Coos Bay Veterans Memorial Attacked

Veterans Memorial

COOS BAY, Ore. – Over the weekend an improvised explosive device was found next to the Coos Bay Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

The memorial is located right next to a popular play area for children. Officials are relieved nobody was injured.

This isn’t the only attack the memorial has withstood. Just a few months ago, an act of vandalism was discovered on the monument. The word “remove” had been written in the middle of the memorial’s cross, plus a perforated line had been drawn at the base of the cross with the word “cut” written above it.
