National Park Service to Marines: Don’t Shine That Brass

The National Park Service has renewed its war against active duty troops who have the brass to polish the brass plate at the base of the flagpole at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
I first reported on the anti-brass shining stance of the National Park Service after Memorial Day 2009.

I followed up with another post two days later, which said the Vietnam Memorial Fund planned to refinish the base, which sports the emblems of all four services plus the Coast Guard, with a coating approved by the Park Service.
