Bronze Star Veteran Denied VA Memorial

A decorated soldier, killed in combat in Afghanistan, is refused a memorial by the Veteran's Administration.  The Washington Times picked up this UPI report.

The problem is that he's a pagan, and the VA won't allow pagan symbols on graves or similar markers.  The Washington Post reports that Sgt. Patrick Stewart died when his helicopter was shot down in combat in Afghanistan.  He was awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star for his actions that day.

However a man prays, a volunteer who died fighting for his country should be recognized.  If you're devoted to Christianity and worry about pagan influences, don't take my word for it -- take Christianity Today's.  They recognize that this man lived and died as an American. 

Good for him.  If only more were as ready to sacrifice for their nation.  America should honor his grave.
