During Memorial Day Services Monday, President Obama reminded everyone present that he had successfully ended the war in Afghanistan.
“Today is the first Memorial Day in 14 years that the United States is not engaged in a major ground war,” he said during his speech, calling it an “especially meaningful” day.
Obama laid a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknowns at the Arlington National Cemetery. He pointed out that when he first took office, there were more than 100,000 soldiers in Afghanistan, but only 10,000 of them remain to train and assist Afghan soldiers today.
