ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — President Barack Obama is paying tribute to the nation’s veterans in a solemn Veterans Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.
On a crisp fall morning, the president laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns on Friday and bowed his head in silent tribute before a bugler played taps.
He also planned to make remarks at an annual observance honoring those who have served in the military.
Earlier in the day, the president held a breakfast reception with veterans and their families in the State Dining Room.
