Family Matters Blog: First Lady, Dr. Biden to Launch Support Campaign

By Elaine Sanchez

WASHINGTON, April 11, 2011 – First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will launch a national initiative tomorrow that will call on all sectors of society to support and honor America’s service members and their families.

Following the launch, Obama and Biden will embark on a two-day national tour to visit examples of communities, businesses and nonprofits working to support military families. Along the way, they’ll highlight the work of Americans –- from teachers and business leaders to neighbors and volunteers –- who are serving military families.

To read more about this campaign, read my American Forces Press Service article, "First Lady, Dr. Biden to Launch Family-support Initiative." Or check back tomorrow afternoon for more coverage on Defense.gov and on Family Matters.
