Joining Forces is a national initiative that was established to address the unique needs of, and expand opportunities for, our remarkable military families. The town of Fayetteville, North Carolina and the crew of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, set the bar for showing support when they spent a week in the sweltering heat of July building a brand new house for Barbara Marshall, a 15-year Navy veteran who has dedicated her life to combating homelessness among female veterans.

First Lady Michelle Obama was in town to lend a hand with the finishing touches, and welcome  the Marshalls into their dream home. Tune in this Sunday at 7 pm to see Mrs. Obama join the crowd chanting, "Bus driver, move this bus!"
