First Lady Michelle Obama spoke with the Governors of America about the importance of helping military veterans to transition back to the workforce.
If we do this, we won't just be upholding our values and honoring our troops... we'll be lowering the unemployment rate.
We'll be improving our health care system.
We'll be boosting economic growth in this country.
And we'll be strengthening our country not just for now, but for the years ahead.
And in the end, that's really what Joining Forces is all about.
It's not just about supporting our heroes while they're on the battlefield.
It's about standing with them ...and their families when they come home. It's a forever commitment.
First Lady Michelle and Dr. Jill Biden hosted a Kids Inaugural Concert for the families of military members as part of the inauguration weekend festivities. She looked a-mazing in a white jacket top, black pants, and a phenomenal pair of bronze pumps.
I recently found this photo from Barack's first inauguration and thought I would share in honor of the President's second inauguration on Sunday. Enjoy!
