During the Third World War, the Soviet Union invaded the United States. One of the first cities to be captured was Washington DC. Lincoln Memorial was partially damaged during the Soviet advance into the city by the time of operation: Hail to the Chief but was subsequently repaired by the Allies for extra credits. When the Soviets fully occupied the city from the Allies, the memorial's infrastructure was greatly weakened. To add insult to injury for the American people the Soviets had a head of Stalin on Lincoln's statue. When the Allies liberated Washington DC, the Lincoln Memorial was repaired once more.
In the non-canon Soviet campaign, the Lincoln Memorial was kept in good condition during General Vladimir's occupation of Washington DC. When Vladimir was declared a traitor, Yuri sent his best general to arrest him, the commander destroyed the Lincoln Memorial for more resources.
