Subject: Pool report #3

President Obama, joined by Maj. Gen. Jeffrey S Buchanan, walked to the Tomb of the Unknowns at 11:02 am. The president put his hand over his heart and Buchanan saluted as the Army Band played. The president, with the help of Sgt. 1st Class John C. Wirth, sergeant of the guard, 3rd US Infantry Regiment, then laid the wreath.

Obama and Buchanan, their heads bowed, took a few steps back and faced the tomb as Sgt. 1st Class Todd A. Taylor played taps.

We're now in the amphitheater for the ceremony. The US Marine Band, in full dress, is playing.
