Friday, July 7, 2006 | This is a belated letter of sincere appreciation to Keith Taylor for his op-ed on the American Legion’s support of retaining the cross on Mount Soledad.

I was lucky in WW2. I wasn’t hurt, but one of my brothers took a mortar shell at St. Lo. A religious symbol of any configuration had nothing to do with why we were over there. We were there for our country.

I have long since had a bellyful of those American Legion flag waving “patriots.”

So it’s the cross that’s important, but not the terrible toll being exacted on their military fellows in Iraq in a needless conflict? The cross but not the bodies? Is that what the American Legion stands for?

Good job, Keith, on exposing those show boaters for what they are.
