Manchester hospital has opted for a more inclusive table display (February 20, 2019)

A New Hampshire VA hospital has opted for a more inclusive “missing man” table display after FFRF intervened.

A concerned veteran and patient of the Manchester VA Medical Center contacted FFRF to report that the center’s “missing man” table display honoring POW/MIA soldiers included a Christian bible. FFRF took action to ensure that non-Christian service members were being equally honored.

FFRF Associate Counsel Sam Grover wrote to the Medical Center’s Public Affairs Officer, Kristin Pressly, asking that the VA remove the bible from the display in order to eliminate any appearance of religious favoritism.

FFRF’s complainant confirms the bible has been moved from the display.
