KANSAS CITY - Police are searching for two people after discovering graffiti on the National World War I Museum and Memorial's dedication wall.
Police received a call around 1 a.m. Tuesday, reporting two people had spray painted "Glory to the fallen" on the monument before running away.
The wall contains bronze busts of the five Allied leaders present during the site dedication on November 1, 1921, according to the museum's website.
