Hewett v City of King

In 2012 Mr. Hewett brought a federal lawsuit against the City of King for using Veterans and the Veterans Memorial located in King, North Carolina to

promote religion, specifically Christianity at the city owned public memorial.

This website is a documentary which chronicles the events concerning how the American Legion became involved using American Legion Post 290 as

a means to join the lawsuit as a Movant Intervenor, former Commander Holland’s sworn statement for cause to become a Movant Intervenor, his

deposition where he recants his statement. Post 290 Member Carl “Butch” Calloway’s sworn statement for cause to become a Movant Intervener,

Mayor Jack Warren and Barbara Hunsucker’s depositions. The role American Legion Philip B. Onderdonk, National Judge Advocate played in getting

American Legion Post 290 to entangle themselves in the lawsuit. This will show how some of the actors conspired, colluded and made untruthful

statements to become part of the lawsuit in which they had no business of being a part, as well as possible attorney misconduct in submitting known

untruths to the Federal Courts.

Former Command Don Holland’s disparaging remarks about Mr. Hewet on TV and his hate towards him for having the Christian Flag removed from

the Memorial.

American Legion Post 290 member Ronald Shouse’s attack upon Mr. Hewett on election day November 8, 2016 and how Post 290 members

railroaded Mr. Hewett out of Post and American Legion membership using Jimmie Rosamond to make false accusations against him.

The involvement of the Stokes County Militia and Militia Leader Darrell Calloway’s hatred and untruthful statements about Mr. Hewett and their ties

The kneeling soldier with a Latin Cross does not represent all soldiers. The Legion is always pushing crosses as some type of memorial or grave marker. If you have been to Arlington National Cemetery you see nothing but Tombstones. Why not a Tombstone which represents “all” Veterans.
