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
Sgt. Ronald W. Croce Vietnam Vet. 1968-69
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?
People need to stop quoting the whole "separation of church and state" if they can't read that it only means that congress can't pass any laws saying how we worship....and in fact that particular phrase doesn't even appear anywhere in the US Constitution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_of_church_and_state_in_the_United_States
Reread The Establishment Clause. For precedence see The Treaty of Tripoli and in particular, The Letters to the Danbury Baptists.
God Bless the Vets.. My dad is a Vet. Why do people continue to hurt them
I had 4 brother that R Vets of Vietnam and 2 passed away from Agent Orange problems! God Bless them All for fighting for my Families FREEDOM!
As veteran this truly enrages me, if these people want freedom from religion then they not force their beliefs on everyone. What is happening to our country and these rediculous foundations that are anti religion?
