First Lady Michelle Obama has recorded a message that will be played today at several churches across the country.
The White House said the effort is to not only honor U.S. troops for their sacrifices, but also take time to give them something in return.”You can rally your youth groups to serve these families. You can host programs to help families deal with the stresses of war. You can partner with an existing program or ministry that serves military families,” Mrs. Obama said. Mrs. Obama added that helping can be as simple as raking leaves, shoveling snow, or offering to babysit for a military family with a loved one deployed.
