The Dept of the Navy has announced plans to spend $600K to alter the Navy Seabees Barracks at the Coronado Naval Base, San Diego. Increasing numbers of people became aware of the Swastika building as a result of the efforts of the listeners of The Power Hour and many others who contacted government offices after reading the news release of July 13, 2006.
Dave vonKleist and co-host wife Joyce Riley, publicized the Google Earth photos of the swastika and wrote certified letters to the Dept of the Navy, the Sec. of Defense, base commander and several human rights organizations in July of 2006, asking for an explanation as to why such a building was constructed in the first place. The responses gave no indication that the controversy would be resolved.
It was only after listeners to the radio show and growing numbers of people viewing the swastika on-line began to express their outrage to local officials, that the Navy was forced to address the situation (over a year after the original news release). L.A. Times writer Tony Perry broke the story nationally and the story was reported internationally.
The FOX news channel interviewed vonKleist and acknowledged his spearheading the effort to raise awareness.
The grass roots efforts of people from all over the country who listen to The Power Hour and circulated the news release are themselves directly responsible for affecting a change and are the real newsmakers of the story. The people are having their voices heard.
