On Tuesday, vandals destroyed a display consisting of 13 U.S. flags and one Marine Corps flag erected to memorialize the service members who were killed during Joe Biden’s Afghan bugout that was hanging next to a roadway in Riverside, California.
The memorial was displayed on a fence of the Ivy Street overpass above the 91 Freeway in Riverside, Fox News reported.
Photos of the vandalism appeared online Tuesday:
Local citizens removed the damaged flags and handed them over to Boy Scout Troop 703 to be properly retired, police said.
The display was a memorial to the 11 Marines, one sailor, and one Army soldier who died in Kabul during a suicide bombing attack perpetrated by ISIS-K. The same attack killed more than 160 Afghans.
