To avoid any problems, Sen. Max Baucus’ office worked with NPS and Big Sky Honor Flight to get a special permit to allow the veterans access to the WWII Memorial and other memorials on the National Mall.

Two World War II veterans from Montana climbed the steps to the Lincoln Memorial despite the government shutdown. National Park Service has allowed Honor Flight veterans access to the WWII Memorial based on their First Amendment rights. The two men are among 83 Montana veterans who traveled to Washington, D.C., this weekend as part of the seventh Big Sky Honor Flight.
