Veterans in Washington used yet again by politicians

They are the biggest reason they are suffering for what these politicians did! So who is using them like pawns in a political game? Showing up to "stand by them" is just another part of the game and when you read the names, you'll know.

WASINGTON, October 13, 2013 – UPDATED: Thousands of protesters have arrived at the World War II memorial this morning to protest the closure of the memorials during the government shut down.

The protestors have removed the barriers and have entered the monument.

Senators Mike Lee - Utah and Ted Cruz - Texas as well as Sarah Palin were among the crowd that chanted “Tear down these walls” and sang patriotic songs according to local news coverage from WTOP, as the barriers were removed.

About 15 tractor trailer trucks from the Ride for the Constitution protest, which took place two days ago, but mostly turned out to be a non-event, have arrived at the memorial protest to lend their support to the veterans.

The truckers came down 17th street honking their horns while heading toward the Mall. Their forward progress was blocked by police barricades.

Although some people have remained around the World War II memorial, thanking veterans for their service, others have moved the protest to other parts of D.C.
