In this Dec. 12, 2013 photo released by the U.S. Air Force, Air Force Chaplain Lt. Col. Richard Fitzgerald, 20th Fighter Wing chaplain, sprinkles holy water over the Nativity scene at Shaw Air Force Base S.C. The scene was put up in the front of the base chapel by a group of volunteers. On Friday, volunteers put the Nativity near a lake where a tree-lighting ceremony was to be held. It was removed after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation complained to the Air Force that it was too secular and represented only one faith group.
