Houston VA Accused of Censoring Religious Speech

Houston VA accused of censoring religious speech

June 28, 2011, 9:40PM

Local veterans and volunteer groups accuse Department of Veterans Affairs officials of censoring religious speech — including the word "God" - at Houston National Cemetery.

In one example cited in documents filed this week in federal court, cemetery director Arleen Ocasio reportedly told volunteers with the National Memorial Ladies that they had to stop telling families "God bless you" at funerals and that they had to remove the words "God bless" from condolence cards.

"It's just unfair that somebody would ask us to take God out of our vocabulary," said Cheryl Whitfield, founder of Houston National Memorial Ladies.

"I could've kept my mouth shut and let things happen, but when it comes to standing up for your belief in God and giving comfort to the families, I don't want to regret not saying anything," Whitfield said. "We all had to stand up for what we believe in."

Jon-David Wells sits down with D-Day Vets today to mark the 64th Anniversary

WWII vets mark D-Day anniversary in Normandy

More than 40 World War II veterans are to gather Monday on the French coast with American and French officials to rededicate a reopened monument to the D-Day invasion.

It was 67 years ago — on June 6, 1944 — that U.S. Army Rangers climbed the cliffs on a mission that Gen. Omar Bradley called the most dangerous assignment of the invasion.

The monument to the Rangers and German observation bunker it sits upon had been closed to the public for a decade because of safety concerns from decades of cliff erosion. A nearly $5 million project of the American Battle Monuments Commission stabilized the cliff and the bunker.
