President Obama's Weekly Address 5/28/16: Remembering Our Fallen Heroes

WASHINGTON, DC — In this week’s address, President Obama solemnly reflected on the meaning of Memorial Day and recognized the sacrifices made by the American warriors who never made it back home. Though the President stressed that citizens should thank active-duty troops and veterans every day of the year, he emphasized that Memorial Day is reserved for remembering the unselfish men and women who gave their lives in defense of the nation. In addition to reflecting on the unpayable debt owed to fallen servicemembers, Americans should also make an effort to offer support to the families of their countrymen who gave everything. Whether it’s hiring a veteran, reaching out to a grieving family member, or simply pausing for a moment of silent thanks, the President wants the country to join him in an act of remembrance during the Memorial weekend.

He didn't mention the fallen heroes from D day on June 6th instead he wish the nice people who brought us 911 Ramadan greetings. The active duty pay increases under Obama are the lowest since we went all volunteer He pays lip service to our military but changed the rules of engagement to put troops in danger
