Supporting military families.

Love that Concordia looks for ways to support military spouses. Got a call from a friend asking for recommendations of military spouses that can meet with First Lady Michelle Obama in Los Angeles and help Hollywood understand the special challenges of the military family.  I am so excited about our upcoming “small town” 4th of July Support the Troops event and parade.  If you want to be part of this day, let me know.  –Melissa

Hollywood guilds to host Michelle Obama in event honoring military families

June 4, 2011 |  4:10 pm

Hollywood’s guilds are teaming up to support First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to help military families.

The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, Directors Guild of America, Producers Guild of America, Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild of America West plan to host Obama at an event honoring military families June 13.

The forum, to be held at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills, will highlight stories and issues faced by today’s military families so their experiences can be integrated into film, television and digital media, according to a statement from the guilds.

“The entertainment industry has the opportunity to help Americans learn more about the unique challenges and needs of military families and to showcase the families strength, resilience and service to our nation,” the statement said. “The guilds have joined Mrs. Obama’s effort to ensure America’s military families have the support and recognition they have earned.”
