Former President George W. Bush on Memorial Day gave a touching tribute to fallen soldiers. 

"Today, we remember the fallen," the 43rd president wrote on his Instagram account. "We embrace their families. And we vow to honor their sacrifice by never taking for granted the freedom and security they gave us.

"In the words of President Lincoln, 'that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion.'"

The Instagram post was accompanied by a photo of Bush with his head bowed and at least six American flags ahead of him.
