SHAME! Veteran's Wiccan Religious Symbol Not Allowed on his Grave Marker

March 30, 2006 15:34 by keithkaragan
I found this article (via boing-boing) recanting the story of Nevada National Guard Sgt. Patrick Stewart whom died when he was in was shot down in Afghanistan in September. He's a Wiccan and although his dogtags stated this as his religion and contained a pentacle symbol, the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley, Nevada fails to recognize that American service personnel are as free as the public to practice any (or no) religion, and have that denoted on their tombstones - especially when they are killed and buried in a veterans' cemetery. This is truly a disgraceful act on the Veterans' Administration's part.
