Mrs Obama to appear on Oprah to talk about military families

Michelle Obama will be on today’s Oprah Winfrey Show to talk about military families and the stress they live under as the nation fights two wars. She will be joined by journalists Tom Brokaw and Bob Woodward to introduce some courageous military families. They are calling for those who do not have someone in service to support those who do. Mrs. Obama has said military families are one her priorities as the First Lady.

She said she was inspired as she met families during the presidential campaign and vowed to do more for them if her husband became Commander-in-Chief. 

Talking about military wives, she said: “A lot of these women can use a girl’s night out, a manicure, a pedicure, a break. ...There are things we can do as a nation big and small.”
