Michigan veteran Tony Bouman, in wheelchair, is greeted by a Park Service Living History volunteer, Patrick McCourt, at the entrance to the World War II memorial. McCourt said he was required to perform his duties outside the memorial due to the government shutdown. Visitors were still able to visit the WWII, Korean and Vietnam Veterans' memorials, despite the government shutdown.
