(AP) President Barack Obama says Memorial Day is a time for more than just barbeques and family time. 

The President uses his weekly radio and Internet address to reflect on what the country owes its men and women who have died in uniform.

Mr. Obama says fallen troops should be honored not just with words, but with deeds.  He says that means ensuring combat troops have the necessary support and veterans get the help they need whey they return home.

The President says the U.S. owes its position as the most prosperous and powerful nation on earth to a commitment from the earliest years of the country “to serve, to fight and if necessary to die to preserve America.”
