Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced that she will travel to Washington, D.C. on Sunday to support and honor the veterans who will be arriving for the “Million Vet March” on the memorials.
Speaking at a rally for New Jersey Republican Senate candidate Steve Lonegan along with Mark Levin on Saturday, Palin denounced the Obama administration for dishonoring veterans by barricading the World War II Memorial during the federal government shutdown. She said it was “heart-wrenching,” “atrocious,” and “not right.”
“We’re going to zip on in to D.C.,” Palin said of herself and her husband Todd. “We’re going to shake hands with those vets who are being dishonored.”
Palin then accused the Obama administration of “using our military as pawns” during the government shutdown with such actions.
She also mentioned that the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), whose seat Lonegan and Democrat Cory Booker are running for, was the last World War II veteran to serve in Congress and noted that his memory was also being dishonored by the Obama administration’s actions.
