President Obama, Vice President Lay Wreath At Arlington National Cemetery

Ahead of his White House swearing-in ceremony on Sunday, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden traveled to Arlington National Cemetery to place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns, honoring fallen troops.
 
The President and Vice President arrived at 9:00 AM, and placed the large wreath with red, white and blue flowers on the memorial.  A bugler played "Taps" as the two stood with their hands over their hearts.  Biden was sworn in early on Sunday morning at the Naval Observatory.
