A monument in New Britain honoring Puerto Rican members of the United States Army has been vandalized.
The monument located across from the New Britain Fire Department was spray-painted and its medallion was removed.
New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart has since tweeted: “I am beside myself that there are people in this community that can have such blatant disrespect for individuals who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. “
