Who's That Guy Maintaining The Monuments?

Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what lawn you can mow for your country.

Chris Cox of South Carolina has taken up the job of maintaining the grounds of our nation's monuments during the shutdown, according to Gawker. The sole member of the Monument Militia, he is fed up with the lack of grounds keeping.

Via Gawker:

"These are our memorials. Do they think that we’re just going to let them go to hell? No," Cox told All-News 99.1. "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."

Now that's a pretty stand-up guy. Keep up the good work, Chris Cox! The nation appreciates it.
