President Obama's Veterans Day Speech: "We Take Care of Our Own"
President Obama delivered remarks on Veterans Day from Arlington National Cemetery shortly after the laying of the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. The president said in his speech, “After a decade of war, our heroes are coming home, and over the next few years more than a million service members will transition back to civilian life. They'll take off their uniforms and take on a new and lasting role. They will be veterans.”
He went on to say, “We take care of our own. We take care of our veterans.
We take care of your families, not just by saluting you on one day, once a year, but by fighting for you and your families every day of every year. That's our obligation, a sacred obligation to all of you.”
