They're not sure it was actually attempted vandalism. Someone apparently tried to fill the lettering with gold paint and instead made a mess of the gravestone. They also did it without notifying his family. A true vandal would've done something more obviously destructive.In a similar vein, did anyone else catch that blurb about MSG Gary Gordon's (one of the Delta Force snipers killed in Mogadishu) gravestone being vandalised in that Maine cemetery?
I would have a special torture in mind for a spineless coward who desecrates a tombstone (especially one that belongs to someone as honorable as MSG Gordon). Most likely a turd liberal type too.
