Last time I was there, you just walked up to it and into it. It didn’t appear to be staffed, or need anybody staffing it. There wasn’t any fence around it or anything. They had to pay someone to come put a little portable fence around it to ‘close’ it for the shutdown.
I had to fight the urge to jump up from my desk and cheer when I read about this earlier today.
So it does cost taxpayers more to keep WW2 vets away from the WW2 memorial.I thought they might have to pay a multitute of gov. employees to man a booth where WW2 vets had to buy their permit to look at the WW2 memorial.
I had the same urge!!!
