A memorial monument dedicated to the memory of Marine Cpl. Daniel Swaim and portions of the Veterans Memorial, both located at Yadkin County Park, have been defaced.


According to Jason Walker, Parks and Recreation Department Head, park officials found the damage while cleaning and maintaining the property earlier this week.


Pieces of Corporal Swaim’s monument had been broken off, and scratches are covering the face of his picture.


Walker said that he believes the damage took place sometime last week.


Aaron Church, County Manager, said that the county park will be monitored very closely and anyone caught doing damage to county property or memorials will be dealt with firmly and swiftly and punished to the full extent of the law.


Anyone with information about this damage is asked to call Jason Walker at 679-4228.
