President Barack Obama, accompanied by first lady Michelle Obama, speaks to troops at Fort Bragg, N.C.

Instead, most welcomes have been smaller-scale: hugs from families at military posts across the country, a somber commemoration by President Barack Obama at Fort Bragg. (AP Photo/Gerry Broome, File)
