Dozens of firefighters repair vandalized 9/11 memorial in Plymouth

More than 25 of Plymouth, Massachusetts firefighters repaired their town’s September 11th memorial after vandals damaged it last week. In addition to fixing the damage, they added new flags, cleaned the memorial’s granitework, and mulched, reports WCVB5.

The memorial’s electrical box and a lamp were damaged and a statue of a police officer was broken in the cruel act of vandalism.

The Plymouth firefighters’ union sent out a tweet that said, “We are firefighters. We never forget.”

Just a week before the memorial was vandalized, historic Plymouth Rock was spray painted by vandals. It isn’t known whether the same people are responsible for both crimes.
