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?
As a Viet Nam vet I know how we were treated upon our return home and to see our Country in the shape it is in now is enough to make you sick, God is watching and for those who still feel the need to remove him from everything, I can only pray that you see the light.....God Bless you all and God bless America.
Thank you for your sacrifice Bill!
UNBELIEVABLE! What next are they even going to think to consider desecrating? This country was founded with Christianity and should always stay that way. Whoever doesn't like it should leave and go far, far away! Peaple have freedom of choice which is fine, but don't take away what our founding father's made for us.
As a Viet Nam vet, I am very proud of my service. If someone finds a memorial to veterans offensive, don't look at it. You start messing with Vet memorials, you mess with my pride. That peeves me off. A proud Viet Nam vet, USMC.
As a vet you swore to protect and uphold The US Constitution, including The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Surely you can remember someone in your company or platoon that was not Christian. I'd also like to think you would want to honor your comrades with a secular monument specifically addressing those that served in the USMC during Viet Nam.
There ya go Patrick, why not set up a monument that's for non Christians who are vets. And leave this monument alone.
Nancy, this Christian monument is coming down. It violates The First Amendment. Our military is secular and should not have any religious symbols attached to it.
