Confederate Soldier Memorial Defaced by Vandals in Oklahoma City

Amid the Confederate flag debate, vandals have defaced the memorial of Confederate soldiers at a cemetery in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma by covering it in red paint according to Oklahoma’s KFOR.

Larry Logan, former Commander for the Oklahoma Division of the Sons Confederate Veterans said of the defacing, “Defacing that is just like defacing a United States memorial, they are considered soldiers by the United States government.”

He added, “We didn’t lose who our ancestors were, they’re still our family, we still love them and we haven’t lost who we are, we’re descendants of Confederate soldiers and we’re proud of it.”

A police report has been filed, but there are no arrests as of now.
