(Los Angeles Times) For 65 years an obelisk like monument has stood over Boyle Heights in East L.A. a tribute to Mexican-American fallen heroes in all wars for the United States–then sometime in October, thieves struck making off with one of the large bronze plaques that had been affixed to the Mexican-American Memorial in 1947–the cowardly thieves also took two smaller ones nearby.
The likely motive money: The metal may be worth hundreds or thousands of dollars to an unscrupulously recycler, who could bale it with other scrap metal and ship it overseas.
(New York Post) Its another Veterans Day and patriotic Brooklyn residents still can’t visit the boroughs only war memorial.
Veteran’s and Park advocates have been fighting to open the “Brooklyn War Memorial” a shamefully neglected building in Cadman Park Plaza–that has never been accessible to the public now 61 years after it was built.
Only an elite chosen few have been afforded the opportunity to visit the sacred wall of bronze plaques, holding the etched names of the 11,000 Fallen American Heroes from Brooklyn who didn’t come home after the Second World War.
