President Obama spoke at the Vietnam Memorial and laid a wreath at the Arlington National Cemetery on Monday, commemorating Memorial Day with an admission that the veterans of Vietnam were “mistreated” upon returning:

You were sometimes blamed for the misdeeds of a few … You came home and were sometimes denigrated when you should have been celebrated. It was a national shame, a disgrace that should have never happened.
