A Wiccan Memorial Day

Wiccan pentacle will finally mark fallen soldiers' graves

Our victory in the Pentacle Quest is marked on this Memorial Day. CNN is covering the event:

On Memorial Day, Birnbaum's grave and those of other military veterans will be dedicated with government-issued markers etched with a symbol of their religion -- the Wiccan pentacle...

"...I like to see our success literally etched in stone, because it will be," said Birnbaum's wife, Karen DePolito. She said winning the fight is vindication for all Wiccans...
