President Obama honored veterans today, which is Veterans Day, reminding America that he will honor their work with a commitment to the “hard work of peace.” The President like millions around the world are honoring those who put their lives at risk for the betterment of USA.
The President gave his speech at the Arlington National Cemetery, outside Washington, speaking to veterans and their families at a memorial service. Some quotable moments from the speech include:
“We don’t mark this day each year as a celebration of victory, we mark this day as a celebration of those who made victory possible.
That is why we fight today, in hopes of a day when we no longer need too.”
Today marked the President’s first Veterans Day address, and he was joined by top military officials and veterans. President Obama delivered his speech after laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
Happy Veteran’s Day .
