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.
As part of the federal government shutdown, national parks are closed. But the group of veterans continued to the monument Tuesday, as reported by Stars and Stripes reporter Leo Shane:
God Bless the World War II Vets - they didn't let the Third Reich or Imperial Japan stop them - did anybody really think a bunch of Park Police and Rangers in Smokey the Bear hats were gonna slow them down?
