Fox News Video Report on Mojave Cross Being Stolen Shows Empty Spot Where Memorial Stood for 75 Years - 5/11/10
Here is video of Fox News reporting that the Mojave Desert war memorial cross was torn down by vandals. The video shows an empty spot where a memorial cross had stood for over 75 years.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars first placed a cross on the rock in 1934 to honor troops who died in World War I. The cross that stood at the memorial until this week was erected at a later date.
"To think anyone can rationalize the desecration of a war memorial is sickening, and for them to believe they won't be apprehended is very naïve," said VFW National Commander Thomas J. Tradewell Sr.
