Joining Forces

Joining Forces is an initiative that was formed by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden three years ago to give the civilian sector the opportunity to support our military families. The primary objectives of Joining forces are: "Bring attention to the unique needs and strength of America’s military families. Inspire, educate, and spark action from all sectors of society -- citizens, communities, businesses, nonprofits, faith-based institutions, philanthropic organizations, and government -- to ensure veterans and military families have the opportunities, resources, and support they have earned. Showcase the skills, experience, and dedication of America’s veterans and military spouses to strengthen our nation’s communities. Create greater connections between the American public and the military." At Military Spouses of Strength we are committed to bringing attention to the unique needs of the military committing through being a place of comfort and resource to our military families..
