Monuments neglected


This is deplorable!

As president of the Delaware Medal of Honor Historical Association, I received a call from a member of the Buffalo Soldiers informing me of the deteriorating and unsafe condition of the African American Medal of Honor Memorial at 18th Street and Baynard Boulevard. One of its 40-pound bronze panels is missing its two top anchor screws, and is in danger of falling off, which would damage it, or worse, hurt some unlucky soul passing by.

If any powers that be reading this letter can help in this matter, make the needed repairs to the African American Medal of Honor Memorial in Wilmington now; waiting until later may cost the city much more....
