Obama Memorial Day
President Barack Obama, right, walks past Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, second from left, after Obama laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va., Monday, May 26, 2014. Later, the president called America's fallen soldiers "patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice" for their country. And he made a fleeting reference to the widening scandal involving reports of poor performance by the Department of Veterans Affairs, which is facing allegations of delayed treatments at hospitals, and even deaths in Arizona. Obama said the country owes it to its veterans the care they need. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)
