ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — President Barack Obama is marking Veterans Day at Arlington National Cemetery by helping to place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama stood in silence as taps was played outside the tomb on a sunny but chilly autumn morning.

Obama is also speaking at Arlington's Veterans Day observance before heading to San Diego for a holiday basketball game aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson. The first-ever Carrier Classic pits Michigan State against No. 1 North Carolina on board the ship docked in San Diego.
