The United States maintains 21 German POW WWII cemetaries.  In a section of one in Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City, Utah, there exists a tombstone for a German POW with a Knights Cross, Oak Leaves and Swastika, all Nazi imagery of hate.  Yes, in a United States' cemetary, in a United States military installation, there exists a swastika, not only Nazi imagery of hate, but in a testament to an enemy combatant who by virtue of his high military decoration, committed crimes against humanity.  

For more information:  Here is an article to read: https://www.sdjewishworld.com/2019/10/05/the-swastika-in-a-u-s-military-cemetery/

The solution, simply, is to remove the swastika from the tombstone.  And I am more than willing to do so myself.  I am more than willing to accept whatever punishment the US government deems appropriate.  Removal of this symbol of hate is worth whatever "crime" I would be convicted of.

However, the satisfaction that I would feel in righting this wrong would be selfish, that's why I am actively searching out people in government to step up and fix this.  Let's see if they really care about doing the right thing.  Here is their opportunity.
