WASHINGTON D.C. - From far behind the barricades of the Lincoln Memorial, Bill Cernoltlavek quietly looked up.
"Look at it, you can't see it. We tried taking pictures at the bottom, but no good," he said.
As a WWII Army Veteran who served in the infantry around the world, he said it's hard for him to imagine his own country keeping him from the rights he fought for; "That little girl there could probably do better than them bunch of silly kids."
But as he and his son begun to move on, a veteran pulled him aside. Soon, step by step, he acted out the words he could not say.
From behind him, the cheers erupted. Another veteran joined him and they made their way up.
With all his strength, he reached the top, finally getting that picture many there say is fit for a hero.
