President Obama is paying tribute to America’s military veterans. At Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day, the President said the nation comes together to honor a debt that can never be fully repaid.

He praised American veterans of all foreign wars, including members of the “9-11 generation” who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama referred to Afghanistan as “the longest war in American history” and noted that it will be drawing to a close by this time next year.

The President said returning warriors deserve a full commitment from their government for physical and mental health treatment, along with help furthering their education. He added, quote, “We take care of our own.” Before his formal remarks, the President laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
