There is a veterans group in Santa Barbara that started putting up a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan. The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.

They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend.

Volunteers sleep in the sand next to it and keeping watch throughout the night.

Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D.  on it.

This is a very moving, very powerful, tribute to the many young volunteers, and many 30 to 40 year olds as well.

Amazing !

Even more amazing....the ACLU has filed a suit to have ALL military cross-shaped headstones removed!

They have another suit to end prayer from the military COMPLETELY……..and they are making great progress.

The Navy Chaplains can no longer mention Jesus’ name in prayer thanks to the ACLU and our new administration.Santa Barbara

We need to NEVER forget that our freedom is not free…..it is paid for with the life’s blood of countless soldiers….but, it is also OUR RESPONSIBILITY  to safeguard what they have fought to provide.  The time is past when the we can be a “silent majority!”  We must speak up and take action to insure that the United States stays a constitutional republic.  American’s must stand up to keep it America!

    I think that this is an awesome tribute to the men and women who gave their life..so that we have the freedom to something as passionate and considerate as what these people have done at Santa Barbara. To bad that not all Americans care so deeply about this great country that we are blessed enough to call home.
