Michelle Obama's Message to Military Families: You Do Live in a Grateful Nation
Posted on April 11, 2012 at 14:31 PM EDT
First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden today marked the one year anniversary of the launch of Joining Forces with an event on the South Lawn of the White House, and Mrs. Obama used the occasion to renew her call of action, and challenged all Americans to keep finding new ways to show their support for military families. The First Lady told the crowd that over the past year, as she and Dr. Biden reached out on behalf of our military families, "not a single person that we’ve talked to, that we have approached, has told us that they could not help -- not a single person. We’ve asked; they said yes. And the good thing is, is that once people get started, they just keep coming up with new ideas on their own. We’ll present something, and they double it. They want to do even more. They just keep raising their goals even higher. They just keep figuring out how to get more and more people involved." ?And her message for all military families, is that "you do live in a grateful nation." read more
