QUEENS DISTRICT ATTORNEY MELINDA KATZ ON VANDALISM AT THE VIETNAM VETERANS MEMORIAL IN ELMHURST PARK
The attack on this memorial, in this park, is a foul, criminal act.
This is the only Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Queens that pays homage to all the fallen service men and women from this borough. It exists as a place where we can all reflect and pay tribute.
I am proud to have worked in partnership with our Parks Department and the members of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 32 to design and construct this wonderful jewel that honors the memories of those who gave their lives in service to their country.
We will work in cooperation with NYPD to hold accountable those responsible for this obscenity.
