World War II Veterans Ignore Memorial Barricades

World War II Veterans Ignore Memorial Barricades

The government shutdown wasn't going to stop veterans from seeing the World War II Memorial.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The government shut down late Monday night prompted the closure of all national parks in memorials, but it did not stop a group of veterans Tuesday.

A tour was set for a group of World War II veterans Tuesday at the World War II memorial in D.C., and despite barricades put up to stop them the veterans walked to the memorial.

A spokeswoman from the Park Service said they are no longer trying to hold anyone back from the memorial. Security officers are also onsite.
