    Hammer Project for U.S. Veterans Graves

    The Hammer Project

    Another such effort is underway for heathen soldiers, many of whom follow the Asatru faith. Thor's hammer, also known as Mjollnir, is a symbol associated with this religion. Thor is a warrior god, and Asatru places great value on positive warrior qualities. The Hammer Project is collecting signatures for a petition to be presented to the VA to allow Thor's Hammer to be officially listed as one of the emblems of belief that soldiers can choose for their grave markers.

    I have already signed the petition for the AFA Hammer Project some time ago. In a country of religious liberty, those that have served this country in the armed forces should have every right to display the religious symbols of their choice.
    I urge fellow Heathen Folk to sign it if they have not already.

    I'm not a veteran myself, but reflecting religious choice/liberty is one of the truest expressions of what is American, whatever faith one may be.
    No federal bureaucrat should be able to decide what appears on a veteran's tombstone. Hail the Aesir

    I'm glad that it's a dream come true now, but Arlington wouldn't allow a traditional grave anyway, so Mjölnir on a headstone isn't enough really. Valhalla was never defined by a graveyard, notwithstanding efforts by the military to honor warriors with one.
