The Vietnam memorial in Coos Bay is part of history. With a cross on it or not, it represents ALL Vietnam Veterans from across America. This Vietnam Memorial in Oregon is one of the first in America as the wall in Washington D.C. was not built until the early 1980s.
The memorial is currently being threatened by a group called the Freedom from Religion Foundation who believes that the memorial should be removed because the top bears a religious cross. Despite the religious context, this memorial is too historically significant to the veterans of Vietnam, as well as to the American people.
Please help us to make sure this memorial is protected!
