Closed? No way! WWII veterans knock down barriers at their memorial


imagesMississippi WWII veterans are mad as hell and they are going inside their Memorial on the National Mall.  The New York Post and others are reporting   a mini-rebellion by old veterans in wheel chairs, walkers, canes or not.

Some Tweets: 

Washington Post: “WWII veterans storm closed WWII memorial, officer for Park Police refuses to enforce closure.”

John McCain: “Good for them! “WWII Vets Appear To Push Past Gates.”

BuzzFeed: “WWII vets from Miss. knocked down a barrier and stormed their memorial in D.C.”

New York Post: “Breaking: WWII vets knock down barriers and take over their memorial in DC”

Kelsey D Atherton”They stormed Normandy. Barricades are nothing.”

News Breaker: “The Mississippi WWII vets have made it past security lines & to their tower.”

Stars and Stripes reporter updating frequently: Leo Shane III  

“Tons of applause as the WWII vets from Miss. storm their memorial. Park police on the way.”

“No sign of folks leaving. The vets have control of the memorial.”

Official word from Park Police on the WWII memorial: “We’re seeking guidance on how to respond.” No effort to block any vets.
