    WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS) - CBS D.C. reports that a one-man militia was cleaning up the National Mall while the workers are furloughed.

    Chris Cox, a South Carolina man, told CBS that he isn't motivated politically, but feels obligated to help as veterans prepare for the weekend's Million Vet March.

    Folks in D.C. noticed Cox and have taken photos of him, armed with lawn equipment and a South Carolina flag, as he was mowing the lawn outside the Lincoln Memorial.

    CBS reports that Park Police don't condone his work, but let it go on undisturbed for some time.
