Hi Mikey:

I wanted to thank you for bringing up the issue of the wreaths across America being placed on non-Christian graves. My father was a Marine during the Korean era. He and my mother are buried in a town cemetery, not a VA cemetery but for the past two years, there have been wreaths placed on their graves despite there being a star of david on the headstone. Luckily, the next graves has a husband and wife who were both in the military so I just moved the wreath to the next grave.

My father would have been furious to find a wreath on his grave. He was a proud Jewish, Brooklyn-born Marine. At least the stones placed on the headstone were not removed.

Please keep up the good work. Know that many appreciate your efforts.
