Resident Anthony Zipoli said the names of his father and two uncles are misspelled on the 25-year-old memorial wall and other locals said those names were not the only mistakes, WFSB-TV, Hartford, Conn., reported Tuesday.
In addition to further spelling mistakes among the names on the wall, resident Don Ives said his father's name should not have appeared on the monument at all. He said his father died at a young age in a motorcycle accident and never served in the military.
"I feel bad about the situation," Deputy Mayor Mathew Dominello said. "The city, we truly do everything possible to ... honor our vets."
