Tuesday a group from Mississippi basically stormed the barricades.

 

The National Park Service has decided to let the veterans visit the memorial despite the govenrment shutdown.

 

Local veterans advocate Dick Tobiason is disappointed this ever happened.

 

"The irony is this happening under something that says E Pluribus Unum, under one nation.  But we are a divided nation.  That's what we have got.  So the Wrold War Two veterans are used to storming barricades, so they stormed them at the World War Two Memorial."

 

Before the park police announced their decision Wednesday morning, another group of veterans forced their way into the park, while police looked on.
