Monday, May 28th is Memorial Day, when we honor and reflect upon the sacrifices of the men and women who have defended our nation. Memorial Day also marks an opportunity to find ways for all of us to support veterans and military families.
To discuss Joining Forces and opportunities to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the support they have earned, we’ll be hosting a session of Office Hours on Tuesday, May 29th at 2:00 pm ET with Brad Cooper, a Navy captain and the executive director of Joining Forces. Have questions?
Here’s how White House Office Hours work:
- Ask your questions now and during the live event on Twitter with the hashtag #WHChat
- Follow the Q&A live through the @JoiningForces Twitter account
- If you miss the live session, the full session will be posted on WhiteHouse.gov and Storify.com/WhiteHouse
