Three years ago, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden launched Joining Forces, a national campaign to rally all Americans to recognize, honor, and support our men and women in uniform and their families.

And people around the country are stepping up. From a business owner making a commitment to hire veterans to a neighbor volunteering to a classroom making care packages, people across the country have found ways to show their support for service members and their families in all kinds of ways.

Celebrate the anniversary of Joining Forces with us by sharing a message on social media, and finding ways to get involved.

On Wednesday, April 23, the First Lady and Dr. Biden are heading to Fort Campbell to speak to service members, families, and employers at the Veterans Jobs Summit and Career Forum. Then, the First Lady and Dr. Biden will answer some of your questions about the initiative.

Do you have a question about Joining Forces? Tweet it, Facebook it, or Instagram it and the First Lady might answer this week. You can start asking questions right now using the hashtag #JoiningForces.
