German symbols in Military Cemeteries

I have not heard of your organization before so I don’t know if you are worthwhile or not.  But your lawsuit to remove German & Nazi symbols in US National Cemeteries is a massive waste of money and time.  Do you not have enough to do taking care of current events and issues.  WWII has been over for 70 years.  A dead human is a dead human.   I have been a part of the Army for over 50 years and I am not offended one iota by these carved stones in cemeteries.  Give it a rest.

First of all, thank you for your military service.
Swastikas are symbols of horrible hatred & horrendous holocaust of 6 million Jewish children, women & men by the psychopath Hitler & his Nazi henchmen. Swastikas also serve as rallying signs for neo-Nazis & white supremacists whose stated goal is to kill American Jews. National data shows hate crimes against Jewish people & property are increasing. Germany even bans public displays of Swastikas & makes it a crime.
Swastikas & Aryan accolades have no place on grave headstones in American military cemeteries with Americans who fought in World War II (over 400,000 sacrificed their lives) to defeat the evil Third Reich whose leader was the Fuhrer, symbol the Swastika & central ideological feature the extermination of all human beings born of Jewish mothers (like Jesus). The headstones can be easily & economically replaced.
Would you be offended by Islamic jihad terrorists buried with grave headstones displaying Al Qaeda symbols & praising Osama bin Laden in American military cemeteries with Americans who gave their lives (over 8,000 to date) fighting the War on Terrorism? If not, we have a definite disagreement about grave headstones in American military cemeteries. If so, you should consider the inconsistency in your position.
