Obama's Memorial Day Speech 2010

Change of plans. Obama speaks at Andrews Air Force Base:

Obama announces delay because of lightning. Ultimately, the event was canceled. Obama, instead, met with families on the buses. Obama's stopping at the Fisher House to visit with families of wounded soldiers. WestWingReport on Twitter has a preview of what Obama was going to say. I'll post the speech transcript when it's up.

Well, folks, thunder and pouring rain killed live coverage.
It's 12:30 pm eastern and POTUS has arrived. Live streaming of the ceremony here.

Obama participates in a wreath laying ceremony at 12 pm eastern time. He will speak at the Lincoln National Cemetery at 12:45 pm eastern. This is a live audio stream of Obama's speech. You can catch a live video stream at Joe Biden will participate in a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery. The Obamas head back to D.C. around 5 pm.
