Dear friend,

If you have not heard, the majestic memorial designed by Internationally renowned Jewish artist, Moses Ezekiel at Arlington National Cemetery is on the chopping block.

The "Naming Commission", established by Congress in 2021 at the behest of Senator Elizabeth Warren, added the beautiful memorial, in the "Confederate Section" of Arlington to its 'hit list'.

Right now the US Army is moving ahead with their orders to remove the memorial.

A coalition of individuals and groups was formed in late 2022 to fight back and a lawsuit has been filed.

But there is more to do. Congress needs to hear from everyone that this is unacceptable!

Not only is it in a cemetery, it also marks the graves of approx 500 veterans and widows, including the grave of its sculptor, Moses Ezekiel.

The Defend Arlington coalition established a "widget" that will allow you to quickly send a message to Washington.

Just fill in your details and the widget will pre-format a message that it will deliver for you..
Please customize the subject line and message to suit your opinions. The key message is that you expect them to intervene and prevent the crane coming to Arlington under their watch.

There is more information about this outrage, along with the 'widget' at:

Thank you for your attention, and for passing this message along to other supportive friends and family members.
