RCMP still looking for Afghanistan memorial vandals

RCMP are still looking to find whoever was responsible for vandalizing Grande Prairie’s Afghanistan war memorial. It’s been just over a month since some of the names on the monument were coloured over using a black permanent marker.

The names “Grace”, “Julika”, and “Bene” were also written on the structure located at Macklin Field. A witness reportedly saw two young girls at the monument around the time it was damaged on June 23rd.

Since then, the area has been fenced off and is under video surveillance. It was officially opened to the public in October 2017, after first being proposed by Canadian Army Veterans Motorcycle Units member Renee Charbonneau in January 2016.

Grande Prairie RCMP have now reached out to the public for help identifying suspects in the vandalism. Anyone with information is asked to contact the detachment or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous.
