Could someone please explain how announcing that no walking, running or hiking through Chickamauga Park can be enforced. How are "they" going to enforce no one visiting Bragg or Sherman Reservations on Missionary Ridge? Orchard Knob's gate is not always open so how is that different from any other time?
Yellow tape around the WW II monument in DC is another example of this childish attempt to punish people by roping off national monuments. Are some volunteers going to hold a big sheet up to keep people from looking at it?
Can we expect volunteers to stop people from reading the plaques on the ridge or in the park?
This is what our elected leaders have devolved into doing instead of working together.

Yes, Ralph, I totally agree. And to find out the Obama administration intentionally blocked access to the Veteran’s WWII memorial, when it’s nothing but a building in an open area in a park. Then they reject a request to allow World War II veterans to visit the World War II memorial as a part of Honor Flights.
Honor Flights brings WWII veterans to the nation’s memorials. These are mostly elderly people, some in wheelchairs. They plan their trips a year in advance. These are the very people the memorial represents.
Given the surroundings of the WWII memorial, one would think it actually cost more, and takes more effort to barricade it, than it would to leave it open. That’s the kind of news we won’t hear much about, though.
