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.

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!

Terry, elected officials are not at liberty to redefine The Establishment Clause. Moreover, these same officials would like to avoid very costly litigation they eventually will end up losing.

Every person in the USA that have paid into their taxes have already bought and paid for these public lands. The government doesn't own any of these lands the people do. And there for have no rights to take away what we have built to reminds all of us what we stand for in our liberties and freedoms. These brave souls that have fought for our country so that we could keep it free will remain. Anyone who rejects this can leave or look the other way. This is our history, our lands, our blood.

Nancy you are incorrect about what a majority has the right to on public lands. Moreover, you don't need a Christian cross to properly honor our very secular military. According to The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, this religious symbol is a clear violation. Try to remember that not everyone in our military or who visits this public park is Christian. Soldiers swear an oath to protect the Constitution. The Constitution requires this religious symbol to be moved to private property.

Patrick, It's been there for how many years and you are just now bringing it up. Should have been around before it was put up and then had a say in it. So stick a sock in it and look the other way.

No one is threatened by a cross. It is ILLEGAL. and Christians don't get special rights. The memorial does not represent all veterans, it represent Christian veterans and is maintained by the government. The government cannot preference a specific religion.

Patrick Quinn shut your mouth you are a public nuisance you need to be taken out that cross does not hurt your feelings it represents real man they gave up their lives for your freedom to run your mouth best thing for you to do is to go out behind the shed stick a gun to your mouth and pull the trigger because you're worth nothing more than a piece of shit & goes for the rest of you who want it taken down as well.

@Joe Oliver, how diplomatic and civil of you. There is an interesting contradiction in "shut your mouth you are a public nuisance you need to be taken out" and "real man they gave up their lives for your freedom to run your mouth."
