At the WWII Memorial on the National Mall:

So, the WWII memorial is open today... Park police letting everyone by right now. #shutdown

— Leo Shane III (@LeoShane) October 1, 2013

No attempt to stop any WWII visitors right now. Maybe after the congressmen leave ... #shutdown pic.twitter.com/SZmxBfh2cr

As noted in the last post, Congressman Steve King "distracted" the Capitol Park Police while the veterans, per their training, rushed over the barriers.

Here's a brief Vine video of the veterans reclaiming their Memorial from Obama's Shutdown Theater Prop Workshop.

Honor Flight vets just knocked over the barriers at the WWII memorial to get inside, #shutdown or no.

Hah, I love it. No one stands between Vets and their memorial. And believe me, those police are on the Vet’s side as well, in spite of their orders to shut it down. Kudu’s to Steve King. Every day of the shutdown, a Congressman or woman should show up at the WWII memorial, to make sure it stays open. Same at Viet Nam wall of names.
Time for guerilla warfare on our side.

There was NO reason to shut down the Memorial in the first place.

FNC reported the WWII Vets who were flown in from the Gulf Coast busted through the barriers that the park police put up to keep people out!

Their new Normandy, Guadalcanal!

GO VETS!

P.S., and lots of Vets need to show up too, old and young. Dismantle all barricades, every day. And biker Vets should show up to, on their bikes. The time has come to fight back.

Also, Congressman Steve Palazzo of Mississippi opened the barricade, allowing the vets to enter, while Congressman Steve King provided the distraction.

This is the best thing since the Brooks Brothers Riot of Florida 2000.

If the Park Police are working, why do they need to shut down the memorial?

Why would a Government shutdown close this Memorial?

It just sits there. It doesn’t need employees.

What dipstick ordered it shut down?

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) said he believed the Park Service opened the gates. Rep Bill Huizenga (R-Mich.) said the congressmen did it. Rep. Steven M. Palazzo (R-Miss.) said the barricades just seemed to part.

“I’m not going to enforce the ‘no stopping or standing’ sign for a group of 90 World War II veterans,” said a U.S. Park Police officer, who declined to give his name. “I’m a veteran myself.”…

“It’s the best civil disobedience we’ve seen in Washington for a long time,” Huizenga told the veterans.

Closing the memorial is an essential service, while opening the memorial is not.

Someone should check and see if the MLK monument (you know, that monument that was built in damn near secrecy and handcrafted by CHINESE WORKERS) is still open. I’d be curious to know that.

This is brilliant! No big-eared Punk-in-Chief is going to stop our brave Honor Flight heroes from visiting their WWII Memorial!! Thank you, Congressman Steve King!

They are just a bunch of Old White Guys. Probably a bunch of gun owners amongst them. What makes them think that they have any standing against the needs of the almighty state, which must be fed?

Simply awesome, AND REAL, optics! God bless these most honorable Vets and Rep. Steve King for standing up for their freedom, which they "paid for".

A complete reversal of the lame attempt for an 0bama-manipulated 'optic' of 'woe, look what the shutdown did...' FAIL!
