President Barack Obama marked Veterans Day with a visit to Arlington National Cemetery. The president observed a moment of silence and laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. “The memory of your loved one carries on, not just in your hearts, but in ours, as well,” Obama said in remarks at Arlington’s Memorial Amphitheater. “Whenever America has come under attack, you’ve risen to her defense.” America needs to better serve its newest veterans, Obama said, calling the men and women who served in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan some of the most dedicated in the nation’s history.
