From ABC Newsby Kristina Wong
Earlier this week at the White House, first lady Michelle Obama honored military families and reflected on their sacrifice.
“I have spoken with so many military spouses who are raising their kids alone while their loved one is stationed overseas for months at a time. I have heard from so many wonderful military children who pick up extra chores, and just step up and keep their grades going while mom or dad is away.
“And I’ve been inspired by the survivors of our fallen who keep giving back to the community day after day,” she told military families gathered at the White House Wednesday, where the children viewed two Christmas trees decorated in honor of military families.
