I am saddened that this has happened in our lifetime. May God forgive us, one and all, for our part in living through this period in time, for loved ones lost, and for not more to try harder to stop this awful and the families and loved ones left behind. time in our lives. May we all pray for the souls that lost their lives in vain,
But only the Christians, right?
There is seriously a foundation called freedom from religion and they go around bothering old monuments? I am sure there is something better to do with your time; get a life!
Then stop forcing your religion on others.
Shame on you for even thinking of removing this memorial. These men fought for our freedom and have been over looked for far to long.
What about teh non-Christians that fought? Isn't this memorial ignoring them?
Gays weren't allowed in yet, so there goes that argument. Yes Susan one signature will make a difference because it's followed by another one signature. As someone said don't forget this country was built on the backs of veterans.
What about the non-Christian veterans? Shouldn't they be included?

This is another disgrace. Call your members of Congress. Get involved...
Military Academy may drop the phrase SO HELP ME GOD
Not every American is Christian. I don't care if you worship your god, but don't force others to do so under the guise of patriotism. A non-Christian can serve our country as well as any.
Either love this country with all of it's religious memorials and our freedoms to express our love and appreciation for those who have fought for these freedoms or take the first plane to Afghanistan and join the other God haters!
So forget about the Constitution and kick out all the non-Christians?
I think it matters more that it honors the vets, not a particular religion. Freedom From Religion appear to be a kind of hate group from their actions. What do the VETS think about this memorial? Do THEY feels honored by it? I think that's ALL that matters.
Then remove the cross and replace it with one that doesn't favor Christianity. What's the problem with that? Do you think that non-Christian vets feel that this memorializes them?
Haven't our Vietnam Veteran's been unappreciated enough !
That's a great way of putting this sad situation.
Glenna, it was vets that filed this petition. You are assuming all vets want this religious display on public property. Being "unappreciated" and removing a constitutional violation from a public park are two unrelated events.
Mr Quinn should spend his time making his comments on one of the Non-Christian, non-Cross believing sites. Obviously they are not appreciated or shared on this "Save the Monument with the Cross" for OUR veterans. I would guarantee there are very MANY more vets believing and thanking GOD to this day and everything that Cross represents as opposed to those he referred to.
What is beyond me is the FACT that NIKE SHOES ARE NOS MANUFACTURED IN VIETNAM. I KNOW, I HAD A PAIR OF THEM. I WONDER, IN PAINFUL AWE, HOW DO VIETNAM WAR VETERANS FEEL ABOUT AN AMERICAN COMPANY DOING BUSINESS WITH THOSE WHOSE LIMBS WERE SEVERED, THOUSANDS TORTURED, ETC. NOW THAT IS WHAT THE PRESS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAS NEVER DONE, INTERVIEW VIETNAM VETERANS. HEINOUS COMMERCIAL INFAMOUS BUSINESS. I SALUTE YOU, VIETNAM WAR VETERANS, FOR YOU AN EXAMPLE TO THE ENTIRE PLANET AND GOD...

I lived with a Vietnam veteran and his wife decades ago. I wonder how Lee Craig Benjamin, how one of the most stable human beings I have ever met feels about this.
I send you my very best, Lee, wherever you are.
We should honor all vets no matter what war they were in without them we would not be here.
Yes, all should be honored, remembered, and thanked. Not just some.
Yes we should honor them but not with the symbol of specific religions if it's mainatined by the government. That honors just the Christian ones.
