Despite signs stating that the national parks are closed, people visit the World War II Memorial in Washington, Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2013. Most of the visitors were WWII veterans who came to Washington on an honor flight to visit the memorial. It was an act of civil disobedience that marked the fact some barriers nor a government shutdown would keep a group of World War II veterans from visiting the monument erected in their honor. The Lincoln Memorial is in the background. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)
