Trump hails heroes at Arlington National Cemetery


Trump spoke for about 20 minutes at Arlington's Memorial Amphitheater.

"Words can not measure the depth of their devotion, the purity of their love or the totality of their courage", Mr. Trump said, calling those who have served in the military "special, special people". "We can only hope every day that we prove worthy, not only of their sacrifice and service but of the sacrifices made by their families and loved ones they left behind". "I think we owe a debt to them to keep their memory alive and my fear is in some cases a lot of the public is not remembering that, they don't have a connection to a man or woman in the military". Bob Dole, a World War II veteran.

He also mentioned the stories of Green Beret Capt. Andrew Byers of Colorado Springs and Christopher Horton of the Oklahoma National Guard as their families watched.

"While we can not know the extent of your pain, what we do know is that our gratitude to them and to you is boundless and undying", he said.

Since the founding of the United States, more than 42 million Americans have stepped forward to serve their country in uniform, said Marine Corps Gen. Joe Dunford during his remarks at the memorial ceremony.

Historical reenactor Wallace Moore said to him, it is important to also honor the sacrifices of all of our country's great police officers. We can never repay them. "I like people who weren't captured".

Fort Jackson National Cemetery held its annual Memorial Day service to remember those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. But it is hard to be content with their silence, for we miss them. Age shall not tired them, nor the years condemn.

The US Air Force Reserve opened the event with a fly over, followed by speeches from military service members. "So, it was a very impressive cemetery...a lovely day...the event was very well organized", said Hambay. The photograph that goes wherever you do.

Mattis said their fighting spirit persists, passed down through the ranks, and echoes in those who fight on today "on the air, on land, and at sea". Unite your sorrow to their awesome objective.

Sticking closely to his prepared text, Trump offered no insight into his thinking about how to proceed in the various wars that the United States is now fighting, including the battle against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria or the war in Afghanistan.
