A SAD TALE OF VANDALISM
The final insult: In 1945, the sculpture was further vandalized, with the face smashed in and the right arm torn off. And as if any more damage could be inflicted on what remained of the rifle, it was bashed in on the end and twisted down, bending the wrist. A newspaper article of the time blamed "pacifists" for the damage. As a result, the statue was removed by the Kiwanis Club in 1946 and possibly placed in storage somewhere. Any information as to what happened to it after it was removed would be welcome.
