Outrage: Flags Honoring 13 US Troops Who Died in Kabul Vandalized in Disgusting Act

There has been a disgusting act of vandalization in California at a memorial honoring those who died in the suicide bomb attack at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.

13 flags were hanging in California to honor the 13 U.S. service members who were killed last month.

There were American flags and one Marine Corps flag displayed on the fence of the Ivy Street overpass above the 91 Freeway in Riverside, California.

One citizen noticed the flags appeared damaged and alerted police.

Photos were posted online of the vandalization.

The flags were clearly torn apart on the fence.

Police said it was “obvious the flags were intentionally damaged.”

Police thanked citizens for “bringing this crime to our attention.”

Two citizens helped to take down the damaged flags, which were later turned over to local Boy Scout Troop 703 to be properly retired, police said.

As of Tuesday, no arrests have been made and police said they did not have a suspect description.

The suicide bombing in Afghanistan on Aug. 26 occurred as U.S. service members were providing security as people tried to flee the country amid the U.S. withdrawal and Taliban takeover.

Eleven Marines, one Navy sailor and one Army soldier were among the dead, while 18 other U.S. service members were wounded. The attack also claimed the lives of more than 160 Afghans.

Ten of the victims – nine Marines and a Navy corpsman – were based out of California’s Camp Pendleton.
