Pres. Trump hails heroes at Arlington

He died in a 1995 plane crash.

The city of East Helena came together Monday to remember fallen service members.

"I'm always very proud and impressed by the Waterville community because it certainly is a community that comes out each year to embrace this solemn day", said Waterville's Mayor, Nick Isgro. Byers' parents and Horton's widow attended the ceremony.

Gary Blackburn, a 20-year veteran and a ride captain, coordinated the riders for the annual event. "They were people who embodied the most important values and traditions of our nation".

"Not far from here lies the marker of Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., a Civil War infantry veteran, who later rose to become a Supreme Court justice".

"I served time in Vietnam and there was a time when we weren't so well received as we are now today. The picture fades, but the person in it does not", he said.

Their sacrifices and the sacrifices of the families and friends must have meaning, the general said.

"All of our organizations- the VFW, American Legions, fire departments, police departments- our ranks are growing thinner every year". World War II veterans are rapidly aging. A third man was seriously injured trying to protect the women. From every imaginable walk of life.

"And 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". It would remain on that exact date for nearly 100 years. "It's a time to keep his memory alive", Brittany said. Each was loved. Each was grieved.

"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.

Mattis's remarks held special poignance since he has recently commanded troops in the post-9/11 Afghanistan and Iraq Wars.

President Donald Trump is honoring America's military dead at Arlington National Cemetery. Just look at this terrible, boorish man, they sneer.

While some saw Trump's activity as negative, there were others who thought he was showing patriotism through his enthusiasm.

President Donald Trump has visited a section of Arlington National Cemetery where US military members killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are buried.

Without a word, he slowly laid the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. "The photograph that goes wherever you do - the picture fades, but the person in it does not".

"The names on these walls?"

Fry cried when he told WOWT 6 News: "I get emotional with vets".

One Twitter user said that he was "beyond sad" and "embarrassed for this country" after seeing Trump make "an idiot out of himself". "It's about remembrance and honor", he said. "We wouldn't be here without the veterans before me and the ones that'll be after me", Johnson said.
