Early the morning after the pro war truck had mowed down 500 crosses this lady shows up with a camera crew and starts sticking the damaged crosses back in the ground. The camp was in shock and was in the process getting a plan together to repair and put the crosses back up .We were highly offended that she supposedly with a film crew had rushed out and was putting them back up without the permission of Calvary west. However the police decided since they were in the ditch they were anyones property . When every one was gone she snickered to me that she had ruin a great press opportunity for the pro Cindy people. If she was sincere at all why didn't she come to us and work with us?

A few days earlier a talk show had bused down about a 100 pro war people. Ahead of them was a few car load of thugs who came in our camp and was very rude and nasty . As the buses approached we warned of the worse and not to mingle or get in their way if they approached the cemetery . After the pro war group sang their last song the all ran toward the cemetery with these little American flags. We expected the worse. Cree and I took off toward them . When they got to the crosses the all stopped and placed a flag by each cross. We were happily shocked . Cree broke the line and went over and helped them place the flags while I photographed them . One nice young lady came over to us and asked us if we would give a flag to Cindy . The person she tried to hand it to objected strongly , " Don't you realize we ARE Americans,but a soldier reached around and took the flag from her and assured her Cindy would get it. As much as they thought they were messing with us the whole camp took the flag placing as a compliment . Probably the only one the pro war people did.

When the lady had finished righting the crosses this truck pulled up and picked her and they camera crew up . The pro war radio station who had sent all the protesters down was very likely the same ones which brought this woman down . They probably desperately did not want the world to see the result of the anger they had incited.




The largest  Pro War protest group was at camp Casey the last Saturday . They screamed things at us which we laughed at and things which we could easily let slide by , but when they started chanting "TEAR DOWN THE CROSSES"  I felt a sadness for America that will be with me the rest of my life.
