Earlier this week, some hastily erected barricades at the WWII Memorial weren’t enough to keep out groups of veterans.

Those barricades have been reinforced:

If veterans show up again, that reinforcement probably wouldn’t prove too difficult for men who made it through German fortifications on D-Day and Japanese defenses on Iwo Jima.

From The Weekly Standard:

Who is ordering the National Park Service to go to such great lengths to shut down the open-air World War II memorial that is usually unguarded? On Tuesday, Carol Johnson of the National Park Service told me that the White House’s Office of Management and Budget “sends everything down to all other departments. We are part of the Interior. Interior gives us our instructions.”

Leave it to the federal government to spend more money keeping something shut down that it costs to simply leave it open.

Meanwhile, guess what areas aren’t barricaded and are being kept open in the D.C. area? Military golf courses. Hmm, I wonder why. All while sports coverage for troops overseas has been cut off.
