“On your first day at West Point, you raised your right hand and swore, not to a political party, not to a president, but to the Constitution of the United States of America, against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” He he said.

On Friday, Biden issued a proclamation to recommit to honoring the memories of the fallen by “continuing their work to forge a more perfect Union.”

“We are the only nation in the world founded on the idea that we are all created equal and deserve to be treated equally throughout our lives,” the president's proclamation reads. “Generations of America's beloved sons and daughters have dared all, risked all, and given all for this idea. Today, as they lie in eternal peace, we continue to live in the light of freedom which continued to burn.”
