I lived on Schofield 40 years ago, and was hoping to go see the cross that we would ride our bikes up to see. I understand it is gone. I suspect if it was any other religions icon, it would still be there. This country was established as a Christian country...to bad we try to forget that fact!
Don't think it's just another notch in the liberals' belt in their war on America. The Army wanted to get rid of the cross because it was spending 60K a year to maintain the cross. That's money the army needs to use elsewhere.

I was stationed at Schofield Barracks 1976-1978 and lived in Makaha. I drove Kolekole pass rd. every day to get on base and I was always slowed down and I looked up at the Cross and thought of the men who died on that day.

I have told people about the Cross for over 30 years and I was shocked to hear the Cross was taken down and the lack of respect of the ACLU for American Military service.

Obviously those who are responsible for this have never served and they would never allow their family members to serve in the Military. They are nothing but a bunch of parasites and should not be allowed to call themselves Americans.

I would like to see the names published of the people who are responsible for the Cross being taken down.

You're right, but let it go. Grumbling about it only makes them happy. Just stick it to them whenever and wherever you can. Works for me.

I was stationed at Schofield Barracks and I climed the metal cross in 1959. My question is why it says the cross was built in 1962. Will you please respond to my question.
Thank you,

The cross was "built" in 1962, out of metal. Prior to that, it was constructed out of wood. Earliest dates to 1920's?

I see where you have a thread dedicated to you and your story telling habits. Reading the comments on that thread makes me realize the truth behind it. You are exactly what the commenters describe a man with a defctive personality. No matter what the thread is your 2 cents is always provided and showcases just how ignorant you are.

Mitch Kahle's suit that brought down the white cross near Kolekole Pass -- that marked the boundary between Naval Ammunition Depot Lualualei and Schofield Barracks -- says much more about our power corrupted court system than it does about the political clout of such fringe elements as the ACLU and Hawaii Separation of Church and State. A REAL system of Justice would have seen that suit thrown out of court as a violation of the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.

The same group that fight to have the crosses torn down are the same people fighting to ensure muslims can erect mosques all over the country.

I was there from '90 to '93 and saw the cross every day and thought nothing of it other than it being a cross. There are too many thin skinned people that live in this country. Removing that cross was nothing more than what the pussification of this country has become.

Well said.

The political castration of the straight white male, begun in the last century, has now picked up momentum thanks in large measure to the reluctance of the straight white male to speak out against this grotesque infamy with which he is now being framed.

The meek may inherit the earth one day, but when they do all the straight white males will have gone to dust thanks primarily to their own timidity.

Just read comments from Stumpy is enough proof of why some whiteman are disliked and hated here in Hawaii. For the most part the majority are appreciated and fit in nicely but a few like this guy gives them a bad reputation.

What do TV sitcom’s have to do with whether or not white males “are disliked and hated here in Hawaii.”

Your assertion doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

the aclu is antiquated and they come up w/BS like this for noteriety and to try and remain relevant. civil liberties are securely intact for all races, faiths and gendors. the memorials are not to offend anyone, but to honor those who sacrificed.
