Korean War veteran Robert Olson of Iowa is pushed in his wheelchair by Zach Twedt, also from Iowa, around the National World War II Memorial in Washington on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013. Veterans who had traveled from across the country were allowed to visit the National World War II Memorial after it had been officially closed because of the partial government shutdown. After their visit, the memorial was closed again. The Lincoln Memorial is seen in the distance. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
