"Last year at Arlington Cemetery, I met a young boy named Christian Jacobs," Trump continues. "He was special. He was standing fully in a uniform. His father was a great man to him. and he was a great man to me. And Christian was standing over his father's grave saluting. It was something I'll never forget."

The president followed up with a second Memorial Day greeting:

The president lauded Arlington as "a special place, and our country is a special place."

"As Americans we come together to remember our great heroes on this Memorial Day," he concluded.
