Veterans Memorial struck by vandals

Over the weekend, vandals defaced a World War I monument at Ennis’s Veterans Memorial Park, 2301 Ennis Pkwy. The park was to have been the location for the city’s annual Veterans Day commemoration service but it had been moved due to inclement weather to the American Legion Post, 706 Rumbo Rd. One of the park’s original committee members and organizers, Buddy Markham, had visited the site on Sunday in advance of the planned event across town and discovered the damage. “I went by the park after church to pay my respects and found that the WWI doughboy battlefield cross had been vandalized,” Markham announced on Facebook on Sunday. “The bronze dog tags that were on it are gone, the cable that held the dog tags was ripped off and the inverted rifle was leaning at a 45 degree angle.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
