Mojave Desert Cross Returned and Rededicated to WWI Veterans
A cross honoring those who died in World War I was returned after being stolen two years ago. Fox News reporter Dominic Di-Natale reported from Barstow, California where a rededication ceremony was taking place for the Mojave Desert cross. It was originally raised in 1934 and was at the center of a national controversy over the separation of church and state.
The objections over the cross being place on public land went all the way to the Supreme Court
. The cross was hidden from the public and eventually stolen in a nighttime heist but returned about a week ago. The one raised in the ceremony today was the replacement that had been made, but as Di-Natale reports, for veterans it is really about the meaning behind the Mojave Desert cross.
