Veterans of The American Legion and others are hailing what they call a major victory with national ramifications in the legal battle over the Mount Soledad National Veterans Memorial in San Diego.U.S. District Court Judge Larry A.

Soledad National Veterans Memorial is constitutionally sound, meets all the guidelines set out by the U.S. Supreme Court in the Ten Commandments case of Van Orden vs. Perry, and does not violate the Establishment of Religion Clause as contended by The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has backed eighteen years of litigation by atheist plaintiffs to destroy the memorial because it contains a cross.
