WASHINGTON, D.C. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) - World War II veterans on Nevada Honor Flight were not stopped by a barricade in front of their memorial.

After hearing word that temporary barricades were placed around the memorial and may have been wired shut, one vet on the bus en route to memorial said of the barricade, "We're going to tear that damn thing down!" That was not necessary as Senator Dean Heller, along with Representatives Mark Amodei, Steven Horsford and Joe Heck were on hand making sure Park Rangers did not try to stop the veterans.

News 4 Anchor Elias Johnson is on the Honor Flight trip and will bring you the stories of the veterans visiting the memorial in their honor all next week.

Blocking the memorial just more of the same old Reid routine--complain, tax, and make life as difficult as possible for those who work(ed) and pay (paid) taxes all their lives while continuing to dish out the programs for career indigents and illegal invaders.

How cute the people that caused the shut down trying to show something. If the Republicans would not be so bull headed the government would still be running.
