Vets ‘Knocked Over’ Barriers to Gain Entry to WWII Memorial During Shutdown

Honor Flight veterans who were told they could not visit the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. because of the government shutdown reportedly “knocked over” the barricades erected by the National Parks Service on Tuesday in order to gain entry to the grounds.

The Honor Flight network is dedicated to annually transporting World War II veterans from around the country to the memorial in the nation’s capital, which is closed along with other national parks because of the shutdown.
