@JoiningForces is Answering Your Questions to Celebrate Its 4th Anniversary

As part of the First Lady's and Dr. Biden's Joining Forces initiative, we're having a special conversation throughout the month around topics relating to veterans. Be sure to join in.

The First Lady and Dr. Jill Biden launched Joining Forces in April 2011 to call on Americans across the country to rally around service members, veterans, and their families.

This month, Joining Forces is celebrating its fourth anniversary! We're talking about how we can inspire, educate, and spark action from all sectors of society to ensure service members, veterans, and their families have the tools they need to succeed throughout their lives.

Want to join the conversation? We'll be focusing on specific themes throughout the month. Around each theme, the Joining Forces team will be hosting a Twitter chat to answer your questions on mental health, homelessness, employment, and education -- and hear from you.
