SAN DIEGO (CBS) — President Obama marked Veterans Day Friday with a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.
He hosted a veterans’ breakfast at the White House before laying a wreath at the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier.
The president and first lady will now travel to Southern California, where they will attend a Michigan State-UNC basketball game aboard the USS Carl Vinson in San Diego.
The Vinson is the same Navy ship that carried Osama bin Laden’s body for its burial at sea.
Banks and government offices including courts, libraries and the post office will all be closed Friday.
However, MTA buses and metro rail trains will operate on their normal schedules.
