As part of a century-old Veterans Day tradition, President Trump on Wednesday paid tribute to those who have served the country.

Mr. Trump began the day by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.

However, the president did not make any comments during his brief visit to the site.

The tradition of laying the wreath there on Veterans Day and Memorial Day has been in place since 1921, when numerous unknown World War I soldiers were buried at the cemetery.

First Lady Melania Trump, as well as Vice President Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence, accompanied the president on Wednesday.
