Happy Veterans Day


A family makes a pencil rubbing of a name on The Memorial Wall at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. The visitors' reflection in the polished black granite is meant to symbolically bring the past and the present together.


Thank you to all who have served and are serving.


The Mojave Cross at Sunrise Rock in the Mojave National Preserve in California stood for 70 years to honor American lives lost at war. Placed in 1934 by members of the V.F.W. to honor those lost in WWI, it had become the subject of a Supreme Court battle with the ACLU over the right to have a Christian symbol on public land and in 2002 it was ordered that the cross be covered while the legal debate played out. After the Supreme Court ruling in May 2010 that permitted the cross to stay but remanded the case to district court to determine if it could be uncovered, vandals stole it in the middle of the night. As of this time the fate of a replacement is still undetermined.
