White House beefs up support for military families
The White House unveiled a sweeping new government initiative to help the nation's service members and their families cope with wartime deployments — and help care for men and women in uniform when they return home from duty. In an East Room announcement, President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and second lady Jill Biden said the unified, government-led effort — which features participation by nearly 50 federal agencies — will ensure that troops and their families get "the support they deserve" for serving the nation.
