Obama Administration Employs Seven Workers To Close A Memorial That Usually Has No Employees
On Tuesday morning, seven National Park Service employees were seen erecting and tending to a barricade around the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. One NPS employee was operating a forklift. There usually aren't any NPS employees working at the World War II memorial.
The employees returned to re-enforce the barriers after several elderly WWII veterans entered the open aired park to pay respects to fallen comrades.
