Michelle Obama and Jill Biden Join Forces to Support Military Family's

First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden today launched the  Join Forces campaign encouraging Americans to take ACTION in support of our military family's. (video)

This is an important project launched by the first lady's that did not get the coverage in the media that it should have. They are to busy talking about the Republican "Budget". Every American should do what we can for America's military family's.


I served in the military during the Vietnam Era and did my job without asking for thanks. However, it would have been nice to hear someone say thank you at least to my family. Click the Whitehouse web page for this initiative, to find out what you can do. If not you then who.

I sent my message to military families and asked my facebook, twitter friends and readers to do the same. When I am at the Veterans Administration I will make a point of telling a vet, currently serving soldier, VA staff person, or Doctor thank you for their service or a thank you to those who serve them. I often see family members helping an elderly Vet at the VA. I will especially look for and thank them.  

Thank you first lady's for activating this thank you that was always there for our military family's and providing a way to deliver it.

Hetep and Respect, as we move to the 2012 Election, Americans should note the fact that I do not remember the Republican first lady's, during the Bush war, years doing anything for soldiers or their family's.

I may be mistaken, do you remember what they did?

Take is cheep ACTION is what makes a difference and is remembered. Since the Dems came to office I see my local VA facility expanded and new technology added. I now have a military Electronic Recored and expect it to improve my care over time.

These are real things that affect soldiers and their family's. Shouldn't we give our best, the best!
