Vets Storm the Barricades at WWII Memorial
"This is their memorial. They've waited too long to see this--it wasnt built until 2004, 60 years after World War II. To make them wait one more day is a shame" Rouso said.
Rouso says the group was greeted by a crowd of well-wishers, including some Illinois Congressmen. But, she was quick to point out that the veterans were only in town to see the Memorial.
