Michelle Obama's Mother's Day Salute to Military Moms and Families
Yay to Us Moms
"As I look around the room, I see all the women who are pouring so much love and support — that same kind of love into their families. We have an extraordinary group here today," said the first lady. "We’ve got moms who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. We’ve got military wives and partners who have moved across the country again and again. We have grandmothers who have helped to care for their grandkids while mom or dad or both are deployed. So we have some really phenomenal representation of what mothering can mean in the lives of so many families, in particular our military families."
