A feel-good story for Veterans Day:
A cross honoring those who died in World War I was returned after being stolen two years ago. Fox News reporter Dominic Di-Natale reported from Barstow, California where a rededication ceremony was taking place for the Mojave Desert cross. It was originally raised in 1934 and was at the center of a national controversy over the separation of church and state.
The objections over the cross being place on public land went all the way to the Supreme Court. The cross was hidden from the public and eventually stolen in a nighttime heist but returned about a week ago. The one raised in the ceremony today was the replacement that had been made, but as Di-Natale reports, for veterans it is really about the meaning behind the Mojave Desert cross.
Happy Veterans Day — and may God continue to bless America with patriotic men and women like you.
