This monument represents more than most people think. I am also a Vietnan Combat Vet from 1968-9 and we were ridiculed, spit at, shot and called names for doing what our nation ask US to do. Now you want to remove one of the few things that represent our fallen Brothers and Sisters in action. WHY. WHY. WHY

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,

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!

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.

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.

What kind of country removes memorials to fallen soldiers. I don't give a crap what a few atheists think. It's time for majority rule. Stop catering to a couple nut jobs trying to destroy the values of this country.

Excuse me! I'm an athiest and I don't agree with your vet memorial being removed, so please stop saying this is about athiests!! It has nothing to do with that and contrary to what some people think, I know of several athiests that are great people that would give you the shirt off their back and die for you so quit with the disrespectful remarks please.

David Lohr, I so agree and I ask why is another group's wishes more important than the supporters of this monument, 'sides those flipping idiots couldn't speak their wishes if not for those who fought for their freedom including those fallen.

Your right Patrick. The US doesn't recognize mob rule so why would the US recognize anti Christian bullies like yourself and those of your kind.

How will your last resting place be marked. Or will your people just dig a hole and kick you in or maybe just take your remains to the garbage dump and run you over with a bulldozer.

Jean, please try to control your emotions. We are having a discussion. In addition, please review the Constitution before firing off misguided, knee-jerk responses.

DOESN'T SURPRISE ME IN THE LEAST, AS OBAMA HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE ARMED FORCES NOR IN BATTLE AS OUR BRAVE SOLDIERS HAVE, AND TO DINIGRATE THEM IN THIS WAY IS A SIN, AND I BELIEVE ALL TRUE AMERICANS CAN SEE THE EVIL IN THIS LATEST THING AGAINST OUR COUNTRY,

AND OUR MEN IN UNIFORM, SHAME ON THIS ADMINISTRATION FOR THIS TERRIBLE THING, SEEMS THEY DO NOT RESPECT THIS U.S.A. AS ANY TRUE AMERICN SHOULD..

I want to apologize to all veterans, but especially to those who fought in Viet Nam. I came up in the 60's and personally witnessed the pstd(they hadn't even had the term then;) that the men from my neighborhood came back with, including my first love. To insult them, their families, and those who gave their lives is more than out of line; it is sacrilige. This type of protest shows a society in decline. No matter what this country's faults; people all over the world want to come and live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

@Maxine Hardy Hammond, Obama has nothing to do with this issue. Why are you insinuating that he is behind this complaint? Veterans filed this complaint, not Obama.

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.

I am a Vietnam Veteran, I fail to see what is so offensive to anyone weather there is a cross or a Star of David or any other form of honoring our war dead. I've lost many friends in this war (Vietnam War). Our country should not have put us in such danger, what about God's laws? "Thou shall not kill." Who is standing up for God's commandments? Our politicians send us off into a foreign country that most of us has never heard of. Putting young men and Women in harms way, forcing us to kill...

Our politicians send us off into a foreign country that most of us has never heard of. Putting young men and Women in harms way, forcing us to kill or be killed. I have found the truth and I should not have even agreed to go to war for some thing that God's law clearly states that we should not do. Freedom of religion, what does this mean when what we are doing is clearly contrary to the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. America has stuck it's nose into the affairs of other countr too many times. We can not be the police force of the whole World. Jesus' teachings plainly states that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves Semper FI
