President Obama today reminded all Americans to pay homage to our fallen patriots and  heroes who have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we could enjoy our basic freedoms.

In this week’s address from the White House, President Obama commemorated Memorial Day by honoring the brave men and women in uniform who have given their lives in service to our country. As we stand with our veterans and military families this weekend, the President underscored  his commitment to uphold our nation’s sacred trust with our veterans and ensure they get the benefits and opportunities they deserve and have earned.
