President Obama is doing Memorial Day right this year, with an appropriate schedule that may even keep him too busy for fun and games.
You may remember that last year Obama draped a wreath over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and then promptly went golfing.
The year before there was this:
But this year, the president will start the day with a breakfast for “Gold Star” families who have lost a loved one in battle. He then will travel to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where he will deliver remarks. And in the early afternoon, he will be at the Vietnam Memorial to mark the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Vietnam War.
Michelle will be with him at every stop.
And that is how the president and the first lady should spend Memorial Day.
