The vandalizing of military veterans’ memorials in Milton and Pensacola during the past year or so is prompting the stewards of those monuments to plan security measures, but they’re saddened at the need to do so.
“You know what surprises me about the damage in Milton is that this is one of the most patriotic places anywhere,” said Ralph Nesenson, a retired Navy chief petty officer who is now manager of the Santa Rosa County Veterans Memorial. “It bothers me that anyone would show disrespect for a place of honor.”
