A group of veterans walked past barriers at the closed World War II memorial with help from members of Congress. Hundreds of veterans arrived for a previously scheduled visit to the memorial Tuesday morning to find it barricaded by the National Park Service. Members of Congress, including Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, went to the site after receiving panicked emails and cut police tape to let in the veterans from Iowa and Mississippi. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
