A fine idea BDragun. Finally, a real solution for a change. A refreshing alternative to the typical "kill 'em all" comments.

I'm just trying to figure out what was to be gained by defacing WWII memorials? My only guess is that it's somehow related to a white supremacist group.

im not sure what white supremecy has to do with red paint, maybe ill behaved latcheky kids? I just got back from iraq 2 weeks ago, and grew up my whole life in anchorage...I am very proud of my roots, but these kids need t start getting some sort of supervision...for real
