ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A statue in a South Georgia town, honoring the sacrifice made by the men and women in our armed forces, has been defaced.

And now the citizens in Enigma are outraged by what they are calling a very cowardly act and are offering a reward to find the vandal.

The statue being displayed in the city park was knocked down and is now missing its head. The City of Enigma presented the statue to the veterans in their community on July 4th to honor their service.

"This is patriotic and for someone to deliberately come in and do this is incomprehensible," said city council member, Barbara Rowan.

"They're over there fighting in Iraq for us now. And we were so proud, and a lot of people in the town are really mad," said Mayor's wife, Marie Giddens. The city is now offering a one-thousand dollar reward for anyone with any information.
