Today at the White House, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden kicked off a unprecedented nationwide wide campaign to support our military families called Joining Forces.
First Lady Obama said, “Joining Forces is about all of us joining together, as Americans, to give back to the extraordinary military families who sacrifice so much every day. Our motto is simple — everyone can do something.”
In a recent NY Times article it was stated, retired “General McChrystal will lead the three-member advisory board for the initiative, called Joining Forces, whose aim is to encourage companies, schools, philanthropic and religious groups and local communities to recognize the unusual stress that is endured by families of active-duty personnel, reservists and veterans, and to strive to meet their needs.”
We will be participating on a bloggers roundtable this evening with Dr. Jill Biden to learn more about Joining Forces and will be reporting back.
