WWII Memorial Barricades torn down many thrown in front of White House

The “Million Vet March” seems to have had some success today Oct. 13th, 2013.

The Vets and their supporters tore down and removed many of the barricades blocking the War Memorials.

"It is important to note that over the past two weeks, the Republican Congress, who has initiated the government shutdown has passed a bill that would reinstate these payments.  But that bill cannot get an up or down vote in the Democratic controlled Senate."

Other than pushing for a Bill to be introduced into Congress making it so that all Memorials will never be shutdown (except for Maintenance regardless of the Government situation.

Million Vet March Website states:
"This is why we will go to Congress after the budget crisis and ask for a bill to be introduced that would prevent any member of the government from closing our memorials down to any American, except for maintenance purposes.  In the meantime, we will have our March in Washington DC on October 13th!  Our veterans deserve that!"

This seems to have turned out peaceful and has had a small world impression, how long this lasts, is anyone's guess.
