WASHINGTON, DC — President Trump marked Memorial Day yesterday by honoring fallen soldiers at two historic sites, Arlington National Cemetery and Fort McHenry. Memorial Day is traditionally the day that Americans pause to remember those who have laid down their lives to protect our freedoms, our way of life, and our homeland. Since the Founding, over a million U.S. service members have made the ultimate sacrifice.
At Arlington National Cemetery, the President attended the wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. He was joined by the First Lady, Vice President Mike Pence, and Second Lady Karen Pence. After the playing of our National Anthem, President Trump stepped up to the tomb to give an honorary salute.
The President later traveled to Baltimore’s Fort McHenry, the site where American troops held back a British attack in 1814. This was the battle that inspired our national anthem.
“Every time we sing our anthem, every time its rousing chorus swells our hearts with pride, we renew the eternal bonds of loyalty to our fallen heroes. We think of the soldiers who spent their final heroic moments on distant battlefields to keep us safe at home,” President Trump said.
