President Obama Marks Memorial Day


 

President Barack Obama marked the Memorial Day, observed in the U.S. for those who died while serving in the country’s armed forces.

“Here, at Arlington, the deafening sounds of combat have given way to the silence of these sacred hills. The chaos and confusion of battle has yielded to perfect, precise rows of peace. The Americans who rest here, and their families—the best of us, those from whom we asked everything—ask of us today only one thing in return: that we remember them.” —President Obama said at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
