Another day, another confrontation at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Yesterday, a group of veterans with Honor Flight were waiting to get into their memorial after police had blocked entry. Eventually, the group knocked down the barricades in front of the memorial.

Today, the Obama administration is continuing the shutdown and adding even more barricades.

But the veterans, along with supporters aren’t planning on leaving anytime soon.

As the first veterans arrived, they proved that the barricades are not strong enough to hold back America’s heroes.

The saga is playing out in the shadow of the White House, which reportedly did nothing to assist the veterans.

Prior to their visit yesterday, Representative Steven Palazoo’s (R-MS) office sent a request to the White House and the Department of the Interior about the World War II veterans, most of whom were traveling with Honor Flight Network. The Daily Caller reported Palazoo’s request was denied.

Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization that transports America’s veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit at their memorials.
