Obama Skips Memorial Day Services At Arlington Nat'l Cemetery To Spend Weekend In Chicago

According to the Chicago Examiner, President Obama will skip traditional services in Arlington National Cemetary, and will instead attend services at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in the suburban Chicago neighborhood of Elwood.
Abraham Lincoln cemetery is hosting a program called "A Nation Remembers," which will be open to the public, as long as they comply with strict security measures.

He and his family will spend the weekend in their Hyde Park home, which they've only returned to a handful of times since he assumed the Presidency. No comment from POTUS yet on why he's making this switch.
