Fight for Wiccan VA tombstone continues

The widow of of Sgt. Patrick Stewart, killed in Afghanistan, is getting some political support in her fight for a military Wiccan tombstone.

The Veterans Affairs' National Cemetery Administration allows only approved emblems of religious beliefs on government headstones. Over the years, it has approved more than 30, including symbols for the Tenrikyo Church, United Moravian Church and Sikhs. There's also an emblem for atheists - but none for Wiccans.

Circle Sanctuary in Wisconsin has an information page.
