To Justice John Paul Stevens, one thing is perfectly clear: The Christian cross in the Mojave National Preserve cannot commemorate all veterans of World War I. "Congressional action, taken after due deliberation, that honors our fallen soldiers merits our highest respect," observed Stevens, the Supreme Court's only war veteran. "As far as I can tell, however, it is unprecedented in the nation's history to designate a bare, unadorned cross as the national war memorial for a particular group of veterans."
