Michelle Obama Is Coming To Nationals Park

The First Lady will be joining Nats fans at the ballpark when the Washington Nationals host the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, July 5. According to Nationals News Network Off The Field, Michelle Obama will be escorted to home plate by children of military families at the start of the game. This is part of the "Joining Forces" initiative, which Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, have lead and supported since its beginning. The initiative is intended to mobilize all sectors of society to support the military and its families.

The Nationals have dubbed Tuesday's game "Joining Forces with the Washington Nationals - Honoring Our Military Families." The game will feature a third-inning military tribute and several in-game programming features to highlight military families and garner support for them, including a special public service announcement featuring Obama herself.
