First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden are launching a national initiative called “Joining Forces” that will lend support to and honor America’s service members and their families on Tuesday, April 12th.
The campaign “aims to educate, challenge, and spark action from all sectors of our society — citizens, communities, businesses, non-profits, faith based institutions, philanthropic organizations, and government — to ensure military families have the support they have earned,”. “We’re focusing on four main areas: Employment, education, wellness and public awareness,” said Mrs. Obama.
