Keep Open the Memorials for Our Vets!
We, the American people and honored veterans are
outraged by the senseless closure of our national war memorials. We
understand that many of these memorials are open 24 hours per day, seven
days per week with little or no staffing and were paid for with tax
We have a right to visit these sacred places and pay respects to those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
We are outraged that our Vets have had to "storm" their own war memorials - monuments that were already paid for with their blood, sweat and tears.
Our memorials are supposed to be places of peaceful, solemn reflection. They should not be places that our veterans have to fight to enter.
We demand that the memorials be re-opened, and that Congress introduce legislation forbidding the shutdown of these memorials during any budget disputes.
