      The following organizations have received approval from the US
      Department of Veterans Affairs so that their symbols can be applied
      to the headstones that the VA provides to deceased veterans. There
      are also the ONLY symbols that are allowed on headstones in veterans
      cemeteries across the country no matter who pays for the stone.

      No other graphics (logos, symbols, etc.) are permitted on Government
      provided headstones or markers nor are other graphisc allowed in VA
      cemeteries.

      Nowhere on the list is there a Pentacle, a Hammer or a Triple Moon
      and that's why we are here, to apply for those symbols, one at a
      time, and to put whatever social and political pressure may be
      necessary on the appropriate elected officials and civil servants.
