WASHINGTON, March 1, 2011 – First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, previewed their new troop and family support campaign yesterday in remarks at the White House.

“It’s about showing our gratitude to that very small group of Americans who make such a tremendous contribution and sacrifice to this country,” the first lady said. “And it’s about serving the people who sacrifice so much to serve us.”

Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more on this initiative that’s intended to rally people, communities and organizations to provide support for service members and their families.
