Honoring Our Fallen Heroes
President Obama traveled this Memorial Day to Arlington National Cemetery to commemorate those members of our armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Keeping with tradition, President Obama laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier before making remarks to the audience gathered at the site.
"The Americans who rest beneath these beautiful hills, and in sacred ground across our country and around the world -- they are why our nation endures," the President said. "Each simple stone marker, arranged in perfect military precision, signifies the cost of our blessings. It is a debt we can never fully repay."
