LUCERNE VALLEY — Majestic and proud, the Lucerne Valley Veterans Monument is the centerpiece of Pioneer Park. But recently the park's heart was wounded when a vandal tagged the stone structure with graffiti.
The monument, which was constructed last year after townspeople pitched in thousands of dollars, wasn't the only object to to be marred.
