Budget Battle
Beech Grove, Indiana resident Joseph Lohman, 25, who served as a corporal in the U.S. Marines from 2008-2012, shows his concern over the government shutdown by holding an American flag upside down, a signal of distress, just north of I-465, where he has been since midnight. Lohman is totally disabled from a fall in training and is concerned about veterans not getting their disability checks. "I'm not protesting," says Lohman, "I'm just standing for what is right."
