Americans mark Veterans Day

Americans around the world paused Thursday to pay tribute to the country's military veterans and honor their ongoing sacrifices in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.

Vice President Joe Biden led remembrances at the Veterans Day National Ceremony in Virginia's Arlington National Cemetery, participating in a wreath-laying ceremony under clear blue skies at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

"I look out at all of you who have served our nation ... and I see the most tested among us, the most tested of all Americans," Biden said.

The more than 23 million surviving veterans today are "the heart and soul, the very spine of this nation," the vice president added.
