Despite veterans’ protests at the World War II memorial, officials have remained recklessly oblivious to the potential for a public uprising at the nearby World War I memorial, which currently has no barricades and no security.
“I guess it’s still open,” a police officer at the scene told The Daily Caller. ”They would have blocked it off otherwise. It might not get cleaned, though.”
The monument’s official name is the D.C. Veterans Memorial, as it is technically meant to only honor World War I veterans from the District of Columbia. It has, however, been unofficially adopted as the national monument for the conflict. The monument is also a bit difficult to find as it doesn’t have its name or any helpful arrows pointing towards it on any of the signs around the National Mall.
