“You can easily spot the difference in these two photos, a purposeful act of disrespect to not only the monument but also to those who have served,” Riverton PD said. “If you notice your roommate laughing about their new decoration, or spot the piece of this statute in someone’s yard please give us a call.”

“We would like to chat with the individuals responsible.”

Riverton PD can be reached at (307) 856-4891.
