President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and others were present at a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, in the Arlington National Cemetery, in Arlington Virginia. The White House said that about 3,000 people were at the service.
President Biden said that his administration had taken care of veterans and their families and called it a “sacred obligation” that was “not based on party or politics” but was based “on a promise—a promise to unite all of us.”

On a personal note, the President remembered his son Beau Biden whose death was due to cancer and noted that Tuesday, would be Beau’s eight death anniversary. Although Beau didn’t die in the battlefield, he was a military man.
Beau Biden had been deployed as a major in the United States Army National Guard in Iraq. Biden spoke of the connection between brain cancer with the burn pits Beau had been exposed to in Iraq.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has said that massive open-air burn pits that were often located near military bases might have contributed to both short terms and long-term health conditions for those who were exposed to toxic fumes released by these burn pits.
President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden hosted a breakfast before the wreath laying ceremony at Arlington, on Monday. The invitees included the following:
