On Tuesday, the usually unguarded World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. was “barrycaded” with seven National Parks Service employees standing guard. But since then, WWII veterans have easily breached the barriers with assistance from members of Congress.
The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack reports today that the barriers have been reinforced.
This morning, I walked by the memorial and noticed that wires had been used to tie the fences together:

The the less visited WWI Memorial is still “protected” by a single barrycade.
Two House committees are already looking into the Obama administration’s decision to unnecessarily shut down memorials and monuments.
