It starts at home.
A 14-year-old was arrested after a memorial honoring a hero Navy SEAL from Long Island was destroyed.
The monument honoring Medal of Honor recipient Lt. Michael P. Murphy of Brookhaven was vandalized Thursday, police said.
Authorities said the suspect was arrested at his Ronkonkoma home early Friday morning on charges of criminal mischief. He is scheduled to be arraigned at Family Court on a later date.
Murphy was awarded the U.S. military’s highest decoration for his heroic actions during the war in Afghanistan.
Murphy’s father says he doesn’t believe the vandal understands the significance of his actions.
“Unfortunately the stonework isn’t here anymore, but if you look at one of the places where he struck Michael was right at the heart, which is like striking at the heart of America,” Daniel Murphy said. “Michael was the type of person who would have wanted to take that man under his wing and talk to him.”
Murphy’s mother said she hopes someone speaks to the boy about what Lt. Murphy and his team of SEALS did for the country. She would like the child to read the book “Lone Survivor” which is about her son’s mission. The book was made into a movie starring Mark Wahlberg.
