On August 15, 2004 The Denver Post reported that "Alice Laverne Gearhart carefully climbed the five steps to the bed of the 18-foot-long truck and stood in awe at a hip-high slab of granite that ignited a firestorm of controversy over the separation of church and state last year... Three weeks ago, Moore agreed to loan the monument to a group of military veterans who are carting it on the rear of a flatbed truck throughout the country and eventually to Washington, D.C., where they hope to put it on display - possibly permanently."
