First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, the wife of the vice president, are at Camp Lejeune this morning as part of an initiative to help improve the lives of military families.
With Obama and Biden are Sen. Kay Hagan and Bob Eaves, husband of Gov. Bev Perdue.
Hagan said Lejeune is an appropriate stop the Joining Forces Tour because North Carolina is a a military friendly state.
“Over one-third of North Carolina's population is in the military, is a veteran, or has an immediate family member in the military,” Hagan said, according to the pool report.
Biden started her talk with a hearty Oorah which was met with a deafening response, according to the pool report.
The First Lady praised the community for coming together to honor veterans of the 1983 Beirut tragedy and continuing to support the troops and the veterans.
