Veterans Knock Down Gates To WWII Memorial After Government Shutdown
It’s been years since the government was shut down. Nonetheless, it’s happened again. As of last night at midnight, our government is officially shut down.
So what does that mean? It means that essential parts of our government are still active, but many services, such as parks and monuments, will be unavailable to the public.
But that wasn’t going to stop 92 veterans from seeing a memorial set up for them.
According to ‘The Blaze’ and as it was documented on Twitter, 92 WWII veterans had taken an Honor Flight from Mississippi to Washington to see the memorial this morning and were devastated when they got there to find that it was shut off due to the shut down of government.
That did not stop them.
They knocked those gates down and went in anyway. They walked past the signs and over the barriers to see the monument that was set up for them.
