On Tuesday, a group of World War II veterans proved that a government shutdown was no match for them when they stormed the WWII Memorial at the National Mall in DC.
The group, led by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Honor Flight, headed home to Mississippi on Thursday, but they made sure to leave a patriotic mark on the runway first.
In a video uploaded by WJLA, the veterans break into "God Bless America" and make our hearts burst with pride. These guys are a serious silver lining to the shutdown.
