I've known Freepers to be concerned about the lack of actual text included as part of the body of comment as it appears in this post that comprise the news item because it renders searching for articles like this useless.
At first, I tried extracting the text from this source by making a png image and then using OCR software that extracts actual text from images but it requires meticulous effort and is extraordinarily time consuming.
I would prefer having included more searchable text in having the post done in the comprehensive manner it deserves but wouldn't have been able to have it posted now otherwise.
The problem of posting actual text from these sorts of sources is that they are mostly imagery

I wonder if these WWII Vets while wearing their MOH's, would be denied access to the WWII Memorial?

I’d wonder if those who’d deny them access would know what an MOH was.

It’s has to be pointed out, pointedly if necessary that the government doesn’t ‘’own’’ the WW2 Memorial or any other building or piece of property. WE The People own it, not the ‘’government’’. And if we were to all not file our income tax for one year they’ll get that message pretty quick.

Thank you for your formatting efforts.
We live in a world where Goverment agents that shoot dead an unarmed, 34 year-old dental hygienist with an 18 month-old child in the backseat, "Heroes".
Your thread shows what heroes really look like.
