Gary Rehak of Johnston, R.I., a 34-year veteran of the U.S. Army
National Guard, holds a flag in front of a memorial to fallen soldiers that
features a cross (behind left) in Woonsocket, R.I. Rebecca Markert ’08
and the Freedom From Religion Foundation say the Christian cross on
a 1921 monument on city property is unlawful because it violates the
constitutional principle of separation of church and state. Rehak opposes
the removal of the cross. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
