Mike Pence on Memorial Day: ‘Their duty was to serve. Our duty is to remember’

Vice President Mike Pence marked Memorial Day by laying a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery, saying “this is the day that makes possible all other American days.”

“Heroic Americans have answered their nation’s call and paid the ultimate price for our freedom,” Pence said. “Their duty was to serve. Our duty is to remember.”

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump released a video on Twitter of a recent visit to the Arlington national cemetery. Trump and the first lady each placed three flags at three headstones after making a quiet trip to the hallowed burial ground before their departure to Japan.
