Veterans fight to keep 75-year old Mojave Desert War Memorial cross.
In 1934, U.S. War Veterans erected a memorial to honor their fallen comrades, a single white cross, – a symbol used around the world to memorialize those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
The site for the memorial was chosen because at a certain time of day, the sun casts a shadow on the rock which resembles a WWI doughboy. For more than 75 years, the memorial has stood as a reminder that there were those who fought and died for our freedoms. But sadly today, the ACLU and a federal judge in California, want to tear it down. In fact, the judge has ordered the memorial covered from view while the case is on appeal.
Please join us in saying “donttearmedown.” We think Americans should honor their war heroes and the freedoms they so valiantly protect; and we’re taking our case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court this fall. Please join us in this battle, go to DONT TEAR ME DOWN
