President Biden will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Monday morning as he marks his first Memorial Day ceremony as commander-in-chief.
Biden will be accompanied to Arlington National Cemetery by first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, her husband Doug Emhoff, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, the White House said in a statement.
The president, Austin and Milley will also deliver remarks during the 153rd Memorial Day observance at the national military cemetery outside Washington, DC.
Biden will attend the traditional wreath-laying ceremony after returning to the capital from his home in Delaware where he spent much of the holiday weekend and where he addressed a memorial service on Sunday in New Castle, honoring the men and women who have fallen in service to the country.
Biden also marked the sixth anniversary of the death of his son, Beau, an Iraq War veteran.
