MRFF was contacted by a non-commissioned officer (NCO) from Mountain Home Air Force Base, acting as the spokesperson for a group of twenty-two airmen (17 of the 22 are Christians, both Catholic and Protestant) who wanted this repugnant piece of artwork removed. Mikey Weinstein immediately called the Pentagon and gave the Air Force an hour to take action. By the time Mikey talked to the Wing Commander at the base a few minutes later, the Wing Commander had already been contacted by the Pentagon. Fifty-six minutes after his call to the Pentagon, the image of the crusader, with its odious melding of the crusader flag with the American flag, had been removed from the dining hall. The Wing Commander at Mountain Home Air Force Base said he will be ordering another “Health & Welfare” inspection to rid his base of anything else like what had been hanging in the dining hall.
