Fight to replace stolen Mojave Cross goes on

City Watch: “The theft, a federal crime under the Veterans Memorial Preservation and Recognition Act of 2003, remains unsolved. The Mojave National Reserve has prohibited the replacement of a memorial on the VFW’s land, citing a court order . . . On October 5, sent a second letter . . . asking the White House to allow the VFW to replace their memorial . . . ‘If we are not allowed to replace memorial crosses that are stolen or destroyed, then your administration will rightly be seen as openly encouraging attacks on religious symbols.’”
