Sometime over the weekend, most likely Saturday night, several signs, buildings, and streets were defaced on Fort Stewart with graffiti by a person or persons unknown, Fort Stewart’s Public Affairs Office announced in a news release Sunday evening.
The Fort Stewart police are investigating and asking for public assistance.
“If anyone has information, we appreciate them coming forward,” said Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield garrison commander Col. Kevin F. Gregory. “Anyone who does so or calls in a tip will remain anonymous.”
The graffiti was vulgar, and, in some instances, included racial epithets. This highly visible crime and the use of the words are disgusting and not at all in keeping with the Army or nation’s values, the news release says.
“We are very interested in bringing the vandal or vandals to justice,” Gregory said.
Fort Stewart Directorate of Public Works personnel have removed the graffiti.
Anyone sees any additional graffiti or has information on who committed this crime is asked to call the Fort Stewart police desk at 912-767-9269. Anyone who sees suspicious behavior is asked to call 911.
