BBSNews 2007-07-02 -- America's first VA-issued gravestone containing both a Christian cross and Wiccan pentacle will be dedicated on the 4th of July at Arlington National Cemetery across the Potomac River from Washington, DC.

Wiccans, Christians, and those of other religions from across the nation will be taking part in the interfaith service, which will be conducted by Rev. Selena Fox, Senior Minister of Circle Sanctuary, one of America's oldest and largest international Wiccan churches.

The ceremony includes a tribute to Jan O'Rourke (Wiccan) and her husband Capt. William O'Rourke (Christian), whose remains are marked by the gravestone.
