ARLINGTON, Va. -- Newly re-elected President Obama paid his respects to the country's fallen heroes at Arlington National Cemetery. In annual tradition, the President laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Speaking after the ceremony, the President said ceremonies of this kind will never be enough to fully express gratitude to those who sacrifice so much for our country.

"Whenever American has come under attack, you've risen to her defense. Whenever our freedoms have come under assault, you've responded with resolve. Time and again, at home and abroad, you and your families have sacrificed to protect that powerful promise that all of us hold so dear: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," said Obama.

Obama added that as President, he will never give up on his commitment to getting veterans what they need when they come home. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
