Arlington, Va. (AP) President Bush honored a fallen Colorado soldier during a memorial day speech at Arlington National Cemetery.

Bush eulogized all U.S. Troops who have died in service to the nation, but particularly those who lost their lives this past year. He singled out army specialist Ronald Tucker of Fountain, Colorado, who died less than a month ago in Iraq in a bomb attack that
occurred after he helped build a soccer field for Iraqi children.

Bush got a standing ovation from a crowd of military figures, veterans and their families when he spoke of the pride he has as commander in chief.
