WWII Vets Storm Shutdown Barrier To Visit Memorial
There is a group of very special people in this country who doesn't care what the government says when it comes to the shut down, and frankly, they deserve to have it that way. Our World War II veterans are passing away at an alarming rate, but this is the natural course of time. The few who are left are visiting the National World War II Memorial everyday.
Today with the government shut down, all national parks are closed to visitors. On the other hand, do you think that would stop a bunch of gun-ho men who fought for America and won the biggest war in the history of the human race? Clearly the answer is no.
A group of World War II veterans in an Honor Flight group Tuesday knocked over barriers imposed during the government shutdown at the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., to get inside according to the Washington Free Beacon. These proud men should never be stopped from visiting the memorial dedicated to their heroic sacrifices during one of the greatest conflicts in American history. I salute them for there heroics today as well at the memorial.
