Venice, Los Angeles: Vietnam War Memorial Vandalized With Graffiti

A mural honoring 2,273 Vietnam Veterans was destroyed ahead of Memorial Day in Venice, California.

Vandals painted over most of the 2,273 names.

Each one is a missing Vietnam Veteran.

A significant cleanup was planned after extensive graffiti, with a thick sheen of silver paint, covered the mural that stood in the same place untouched since 1992.

City officials said the clean up won’t be easy and sand-blasting the graffiti off the wall will damage parts of the mural.

The artist who painted the mural died in 1996.
