Arlington, VA — President Obama visited Arlington to pay tribute to America's service members who died while defending our nation. He did do so by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
The ceremony was followed by a Memorial Day Observance program sponsored by the Department of Defense.
In honor of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, a rose was also placed on every single grave at Arlington National Cemetery. The flowers are in addition to the flags that were placed at each headstone.
