Vandals hit memorial in GAR Park New LED light will cost veterans $500 to replace

Russell V.J. Chaput, 89, of Haverhill shows the damage to one of the LED floodlights that surround the Korean War Veterans Memorial in GAR Park. The local veterans, not the city, pay for all the maintenance and upkeep of the memorial. Chaput hopes to raise $500 to replace the light and $30,000 for long-term maintenance of the memorial. TIM JEAN/Staff photo
