    It wasn't a matter of class. It was a lack of awareness of a coming trend.

    And what does awareness of that trend have to do with this specific person's death, and this specific memorial?
    What would you think if someone wanted a memorial for a relative on government property that said "Murdered by a black man" or something like that?

    Free speech....

    I was talking about the actual name of the memorial. Not the rest of the inscriptions. Those soldiers died in WWII. It shows how they died..even if it doesn't say exactly how they died.

    His son was killed by Muslim terrorists. That is a stated fact. You cannot be PC with facts...

    A lot of people think that you can be. Example is in the OP. In this case the PC thing to do is just not mention it.

    I would not mention it, personally, but I see nothing wrong with someone stating an accepted fact on a tombstone. If the terrorists were not Muslim, but of Middle Eastern descent, I could see that being an issue.

    Being a muslim is not being of a particular race. It's being of a particular religion.
