Bush calls on Americans to remember war dead

9:42 AM EDT, May 26, 2008

WASHINGTON - President Bush will lay a wreath at Arlington Cemetery's Tomb of the Unknowns for one last time today on Memorial Day.

His successor inherits that duty next year. In his last Memorial Day Proclamation, Bush says America's freedoms "come at great costs." But he adds that the brave men and women who've fought and died in the nation's service have "transformed the world in unimaginable ways."

The president is also calling on Americans to observe a "moment of remembrance" at 3 p.m. local time to honor those who perished fighting for freedom. Heeding the president's request, the moment will be observed by Major League Baseball. Also, Amtrak trains will all sound their horns and buglers will play taps at military cemeteries.
