WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is urging the nation to keep veterans in their thoughts long after Veterans Day and ensure that they receive the care and benefits they've earned.

During a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery on Wednesday, the president is noting some of the problems that veterans have faced in receiving health care through the Department of Veterans Affairs. He says improvements are occurring, but he is not satisfied.

The president laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns and led remarks at an annual observance intended to honor and thank all who have served in the armed forces.

Earlier in the day, the president had a breakfast reception with veterans and their families in the East Room of the White House.
