One of the more inspiring stories of the government shutdown was of the World War II vets who tossed aside barricades to visit their memorial.

In order to make sure they wouldn’t need to do that again, House Republicans tried to pass a bill to fund National Parks, among other items, while the shutdown is further negotiated. Not surprisingly, Democrats chose to block the bill at the expense of World War II vets.

But this won’t stop Honor Flight from continuing its mission to ensure as many living World War II vets as possible see the memorial in Washington D.C. erected in their honor.

The Honor Flight is a great organization that could use your donation.

If you’re low on cash, you could show up tomorrow to support the vets, and maybe bring a prop with you:
