(Arlington, VA) -- About 100 members of the public can say they were among those at Arlington National Cemetery honoring the memory of those who died fighting for America. They received the tickets to this morning's event featuring President Obama on a first-come, first-served basis. All of them received American flags as they entered the amphitheater where the ceremony took place. Arlington National Cemetery is 150-years-old this year and is the place where some 400-thousand fallen warriors are buried. Today, their tombstones are adorned with flags and flowers.
