“Vice President Pence’s work glove quickly soaked through with water as he scrubbed the names etched in the black granite walls of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Saturday,” according to USA Today.

The wall is usually sprayed with cleaner and a hose. However, the freezing temperatures meant it had to be cleaned by hand. A group of volunteers also showed up to help clean the wall.

At one point, Vice President Pence’s wife, Karen Pence, also helped clean the wall. After the Pence’s were done honoring the victims of the war with a dazzling surface, they thanked veterans for their service.
