New Delhi [India], May 29 (ANI): The United States observed the Memorial Day, also known as Deceleration Day, when the country remembers those who died while serving in the armed forces.
US President Donald Trump delivered an poweful message at the White House to commemorate the occasion.
He took to his Twitter account to give honour to the US freedom fighters.
"Thank you for joining us on this solemn day of remembrance. We are gathered here on the sacred soil of @ArlingtonNatl Cemetery to honor the lives and deeds of America's greatest heroes, the men, and women who laid down their lives for our freedom. #MemorialDay" Trump tweeted.



Trump further said that these heroes came from various economic backgrounds as some were rich and others were poor.
"The heroes who rest in these hallowed fields, in cemeteries, battlefields, and burial grounds near and far are drawn the full tapestry of American life. They came from every generation from towering cities and wind-swept prairies, from privilege and from poverty", Trump added.


The Memorial Day in the US unofficially starts the summer vacation period in the country. (ANI)
