The Latest: Obama visits with troops for 9/11 commemorations

President Barack Obama is telling military service members the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks is a solemn day and he wants to use it to make sure those killed are never forgotten.

Obama met with troops at Fort Meade in Maryland on Friday and took questions through social media from those stationed overseas.

He reassured the troops that the U.S. must work to make sure that the men and women in uniform have the strategy and resources they need to succeed.

The president says the U.S. is still an indispensable force for good around the world.

Obama says the country still faces significant threats, including from the Islamic State group forces in the Middle East.
