Vandalism to Faces of Freedom Veterans Memorial in Atascadero a disgrace

We’ve got a truck-sized brickbat for the driver of the pickup that tore through the Faces of Freedom Veterans Memorial in Atascadero, causing $15,000 in damage. This was no garden-variety vandalism, but rather, defacement of atribute to veterans who sacrificed their lives. The monument includes walls inscribed with the names of fallen service members from San Luis Obispo County — and this is the place where someone decides to do a little off-roading?
