LINCOLN, MAINE – It’s exactly the kind of story we don’t want to be reporting on Memorial Day Weekend.
They put up a Facebook post about the damage this week:
“MSG Gary Gordon is not only a hometown hero for Lincoln, he’s an American Hero!!” they said.
The vandalism to his gravestone is believed to have occurred sometime within the last 2 weeks.

But if that’s the case, they said the family was never notified that this was happening.
