(KTVI) – The government shutdown is over a week old and the lawns at the nation’s capitol are getting long. One man decided to do what all 535 members of congress could not. He took care of business at the Lincoln Memorial armed with a South Carolina state flag and a lawn mower.
The shutdown may fade on but not the image of one man’s dedication to a perfect lawn. Pictures of the man posted to Reddit and twitter went viral. The nation saw the fruits of the man’s yard work. The caption posted with the pic on Reddit says, “Someone give him a medal.”
