Obama Closes Normandy Beach Cemetery

Via New York Post:

Tourists travelling to Omaha Beach to pay their respects to the 9,387 military dead at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial will find it closed, a victim of the U.S. government’s partial shutdown.

The site overlooking the D-Day invasion beaches is one of 24 U.S. military cemeteries overseas that have closed to visitors since Monday. Ten more cemeteries in in France, as well as others in various European countries as well as Mexico, Panama, Tunisia and the Philippines, will remain closed for the duration of the shutdown. . .


Aside from Arlington, I'm not sure there's a more sacred patch of ground than here. And the president has shut it down. - Greg Pollowitz
