I am pretty impressed that the First Family is stepping up to take care and focus on military families. I really think this is awesome considering that her husband is the Commander in Chief, it makes total sense! Her appearance on Oprah comes three days after President Obama announced new government-wide initiatives to support military families, including programs aimed at preventing suicide, education, spouse employment and homelessness. The first lady has become an advocate for military families. She has traveled to military installations to talk with troops about their needs and concerns and has urged citizens to volunteer time to help them.
I am really proud that I am able to play a part in this as being a Chapter Director for Blue Star Families.
