A columnist with The World newspaper company located in Coos Bay was copied a letter directed to Coos city officials claiming responsibility for at least two explosives found at religious sites over the past few weeks.

One was detonated at the base of a controversial memorial site honoring veterans and bearing cross symbol.
 The other, an IED was disassembled by bomb techs after firefighters responded to a call of fire at the prayer church in downtown Coos Bay.

Now, federal agents are involved and a group calling themselves "Veteran United For Non-Religious Memorials" is taking responsibility. The group also promises to continue the terror until the city removes the cross-bearing memorial from public property.
