On Monday, President Obama unveiled a comprehensive plan to coordinate and promote government efforts to assist military families and veterans in need. The president praised his own administration's "unprecedented commitment" to the issue. The commander in chief added that first lady Michelle Obama would appear on "Oprah" to "urge every American to join a new national campaign to support our military families." The first couple's newfound interest in this worthy cause is welcome, but private initiatives that are making a difference deserve equal attention.
"I think it's great," she told The Washington Times. "It's a wonderful feeling to have helped someone so deserving, to have such an impact on his life. It makes me want to help more."
She does not plan on a military career but says she definitely will find other ways to continue to serve the community.
