CNN reports that “President Barack Obama marked his final Memorial Day as president by paying tribute to fallen U.S. soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday.”  

“‘Whether they stood up in times of war, signed up in times of peace or were called up by a draft board,’ Obama said. ‘They embodied the best of America.'”  

“The rows of white gravestones at Arlington ‘belong to young Americans,’ he noted. ‘Those who never lived to be honored as veterans for their service.'”
