(FOX NEWS) – President Biden in Memorial Day remarks Monday asked Americans not only to remember the “sacrifice” and “valor” of American military members who died in service but also their “humanity” and “precious life.”

The president lauded the United States’ fallen service members as “those who gave their all in the service of America, in the service of freedom, in the service of justice.”

“Remember their sacrifice, their valor and their grace. Remember their smiles, their loves, their laughter, their essential vibrant and transcendent humanity,” Biden added. “For while we stand amid monuments of stone, we must never forget that each of these markers, for those known and unknown, here at Arlington and far beyond, represent a precious life. A son, a daughter, a mother, a spouse, brother, a sister, a friend, a neighbor.”

Biden made the comments shortly after a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery at which he was joined by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Vice President Kamala Harris and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley.
