The First Lady: “When we talk about service to our country, when we talk about all that sacrifice for a cause, when we talk about patriotism and courage and resilience, we’re not just talking about our troops and our veterans. We’re talking about military kids, who play their own very unique role in keeping our country safe and preserving the freedoms that we all hold dear.”
