ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — President Barack Obama is paying tribute to America’s veterans by laying a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery.

The president also hosted a Veterans Day breakfast Monday at the White House for those who have served in the military and their family members.

Obama said in his Veterans Day proclamation that the country’s obligations to those who have served “endure long after the battle ends.”

He said the courage, self-sacrifice and devotion of veterans represent the American character at its best and he encouraged everyone to honor every service member who has ever worn the country’s uniforms.
