Nazi Headstones

F. E. Warren Air Force Base was an Army Post before it was transferred to the Air Force. It was a POW camp during WWII. The Base has a cemetery where calvary and soldiers from the Indian Wars are buried as well as family members and military veterans. Next to the cemetery, in a separate fenced area, are the remains of 9 German and Italian POWs.

 The headstones are the same as those used at national and VA cemeteries. The inscription has the name, rank, date of death and country served. That is all.
 F.E. Warren should be the model for how former enemies should be honored. Besides, WWII was about stopping tyranny and preserving democracy. Neither the swastika, a symbol of genocide, nor Hitler, the architect, should be engraved on headstones in national cemeteries. Period!
