We Don't Need No Stinkin' Badges

UPDATE Full story now posted.  Opens: "Wheelchair-bound elderly veterans knocked over barricades to tour the World War II Memorial Tuesday morning in defiance of the government shutdown...."

UPDATE from Stars & Stripes reporter on Twitter: "Official word from Park Police on the WWII memorial: 'We're seeking guidance on how to respond.' No effort to block any vets."

Photo of Day:   World War II flight vets from Mississippi storm memorial in D.C. closed by shutdown, knock over barriers.  Almost expected to see Iwo Jima type flag raising. Stars & Stripes reporter on the scene--says they continue to "hold" the ground.  Politicians now there.  The scene via Vine.
