Today, the Government Shutdown forced thousands of visiting veterans to experience the hash reality of a gridlocked government. Met by barricades, police tape and security officials veterans were told they were unable to pay their respects to their brothers in arms.
At the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC veterans were forced to storm to once again storm the gates like many had done years before on the beaches of Normandy.
Veterans from all over were told to go home. That because of the actions of Congress and the President inability to avoid a shutdown they would be forced to leave the site and until further notice not return!
The actions of our elected officials have once again hurt the most honorable of Americans; Veterans!
Please stand with millions of Americans and tell Congress and the President that this has got to stop.
Demand they reopen the memorials and allow our hero's to pay tribute to their fallen brothers!
