How Trump and Pence Are Honoring America's Fallen Heroes on Memorial Day

This year, just as they did then, members of the Army's 3rd Infantry (the Old Guard and the real Honor Guard) and volunteers will place just over 220,000 flags at individual grave sites at the cemetery. It became a federal holiday in 1971. In doing so, we pledge our Nation's allegiance to the great cause of freedom for which they fought and ultimately died.

Today, a new generation of American patriots are fighting to win the battle against terrorism.To every Gold Star family, God is with you, and your loved ones are with him.

President Donald Trump is honoring America's military dead at Arlington National Cemetery placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at a Memorial Day ceremony.

Trump tweeted this morning he is looking forward to paying his respects to America's courageous men and women.

As President Trump and military leaders saluted or put their hands over their hearts for the Star-Spangled Banner, spectators were seen taking photos and videos of the Memorial Day service with their smartphones instead of taking a moment to honor those who had given their lives for our country.

Before the president began his remarks, Dunford thanked fallen military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

The President's first Memorial Day address comes as his administration is pushing back against reports his son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner tried to set up secret communications with Russian Federation.

Trump's remarks at the Memorial Day ceremony was his first public appearance since returning from a nine-day foreign trip.
