THE BRONX - President Barack Obama paid tribute to the men and women who have served our country during a trip to Arlington National Cemetery.

The president laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns Sunday in honor of Veterans Day.

Obama said, "Today a proud nation expresses our gratitude. But we do so mindful that no ceremony or parade, no hug or hand shake, is enough to truly honor that service, for that we must do more. For that we must commit this day and every day to serving you as well as you served us."
