    Vandals Deface Sign Honoring Soldier

    Article

    Associated Press | March 25, 2006
    CHESHIRE, Mass. - The family of a Green Beret who was one of the nation's first casualties in the war on terror in Afghanistan was outraged after discovering vandals had defaced a sign honoring the Soldier with anti-war graffiti.

    "I felt like I was going to vomit," said Michael Petithory, the brother of Army Sgt. 1st Class Daniel Petithory.

    "It was just pure rage," he told the North Adams Transcript.

    Daniel Petithory was killed Dec. 5, 2001, along with two other Soldiers when a U.S. bomb landed about 100 yards from their position north of Kandahar.

    Michael Petithory discovered the vandalism on Thursday as he biked along the Ashuwillticook Trail.

    The words "oil," "Bush" and "Christian Crusade" and other phrases were written in black marker on the brown metal sign.

    Family and friends cleaned the sign, which is one of three along a stretch of the trail that honors the Cheshire native. The other two signs were not vandalized.

    Daniel Petithory was a recipient of the Silver Star and Purple Heart. He joined the Army shortly after graduating from Hoosac Valley High School in 1987. He is buried near family members in Cheshire Cemetery.

    Police in Cheshire and Lanesborough are investigating, but there had been no arrests as of Friday evening. Cheshire, a town of approximately 3,500 residents, is about 140 miles west of Boston.

    Someone should check the whereabouts of Cindy Sheehan's little clan

    They started out as grieving mothers and seemed to kinda turn into head cases, seems to me.

    I wasn't thinking her so much as that other bunch of nutjobs that have been protesting at soldiers' funerals.
