Family fights to have wiccan symbol placed on soldier's headstone

According to Yahoo news, the family of a soldier killed in Afghanistan last September has been involved in a struggle to get his religion recognized with the placement of a wiccan symbol on his headstone. Unfortunately, the Department of Veterans affairs doesn't recognize the Wiccan faith.

Although politicians are giving lip service sympathy to the family, Rev. Selena Fox, senior minister of the Wiccan Circle Sanctuary in Barneveld, Wis., reveals that she has been pushing the federal government to adopt the Wiccan pentacle for such cases for over 9 years.
