Despite a Government Shutdown, veterans were allowed to visit the World War Two Memorial.

More than 100 veterans from Kansas, Missouri and the Chicago area came to the site, and representatives from the National Park Service moved the barricades.

The visits were arranged as part of an Honor Flight Program.  One veteran says he's pleased that the Memorial is open and has a suggestion for lawmakers. 
"I'm glad it's open, because I think what the politicians are doing is nuts, absolutely crazy.  If they wanna do something drastic, why don't they cut their salaries? Wouldn't that be great?"
