Chris Cox has taken cleanup around Washington's memorials into his own hands.

Most everybody complains about the government shutdown, but Chris Cox is actually doing something about it.

With many government operations shuttered by the political standoff in Washington, Cox took a lawn mower to the National Mall this week and began cutting grass areas between the Lincoln and World War II memorials.

"These are our memorials. Do they think that we're just going to let them go to hell?'' Cox told Washington radio station 99.1 in a story recounted by Columbia, S.C., TV station WIS.

Cox carried a blue South Carolina state flag as he pushed a standard gasoline-powered mower. He is a native of Mount Pleasant, S.C., living just outside Washington in Alexandria, Va.

He calls his one-citizen effort the Memorial Militia, aiming to keep things tidy and trim the grass that failed to halt its growth when the U.S. government issued furloughs and suspended many official functions last week.

"If they shut down our memorials, we're still going to take the trash out, we're going to clean the windows, we're going to cut the grass, we're going to pull the weeds, we're going to do the tree work,'' he said.

Cox was spotted with his flag at work Wednesday.

Cox had taken it upon himself since our visit last week to keep up the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam and World War II memorials and surrounding grounds.

He bought a lawn mower, a blower and spent the days and evenings picking up trash, cutting grass and blowing leaves to keep walkways clean.

There's no official sanction for his work. Cox said a U.S. Park Service officer had approached him an hour earlier and told him he was no longer allowed to do so ... though the park service would not maintain these monuments now.

Cox told the station that he's not motivated by politics but wants to keep the memorials looking tidy as veterans arrive for a planned Million Vet march on Washington.


(Chris Cox from South Carolina has kicked the FRAUD obama in the butt by undercutting the government. Obama and his fellow comrads have shutdown public facilities that would do the most damage. Obama should be IMPEACHED and arrested for treason! Chris could have found all the extra help he could use at the illegal alien rally that was held nearby to help trim the memorials.) Story Reports
