Michelle Obama, Jill Biden to Spotlight Military Families on Tour

ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- First lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden are heading out next week on a tour to support military families.

The pair will first make a visit to Camp Lejeune on Wednesday, where the duo will address 3,000 marines, soldiers, sailors and military family members.

Following that event, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden will join Martha Stewart and pregnant women whose husbands are in the military when they visit Operation Shower, a non-profit that hosts baby showers for expecting military families. The two then plan to visit service members and families at a support center in San Antonio, Texas, before an evening trip to Coors Field in Denver where they will join military families from across Colorado for a Rockies baseball game.

On Thursday, their tour will take them to Colorado Springs and Columbus, Ohio.
