MEMORIAL DAY
is the American holiday that remembers and honors
US  military war dead. This year it is on Monday, May
29.

Sgt. Patrick Stewart, a Nevada National Guardsman
and a Wiccan, was killed in action by terrorists in
Afghanistan on September 25, 2005. He died in the service of theUnited States in Operation Enduring Freedom, also known
as the War on Terrorism which the USA launched following
terrorist attacks on America on September 11, 2001.

Sgt. Patrick Stewart made the ultimate sacrifice
and deserves the same respect and honor given the
other war dead. He deserves to have his memorial plaque with his emblem of belief on it, the Pentacle, at this Memorial Day,
the first after his death.

More about Sgt. Stewart has just been posted
on-line:
http://www.circlesanctuary.org/liberty/veteranpentacle/stewartlifeandtimes.htm


Thus far, the US Department of Veterans Affairs
(VA) has failed to give Sgt. Stewart the honor that he
deserves. Despite repeated requests to approve the Pentacle
over the past 9 years, the VA still has not approved the
Pentacle for inclusion on government-issued memorial markers,
plaques, and headstones for deceased veterans.

Because the VA has still not approved the
Pentacle, Roberta Stewart, Sgt. Stewart's widow, is holding a
special Memorial Day service to honor him, to memorialize
deceased veterans of all religions, and to issue a public
call to hold the VA accountable for upholding the US Constitutionby providing equal treatment for all the religions
of deceased veterans.
