Michelle Obama Poses with Five Female Veterans for 'Redbook' November 2014

Michelle Obama poses with Michelle Young, Sonia Whipp, Kandy Ayala, Trish Freeland, and Dawn Smith, five female veterans out of the military, to raise awareness for veterans issues in the November 2014 issue of Redbook.

Here’s what the 50-year-old First Lady had to share with the mag:

On the importance of education: “I have been promoting education period, because that is the way the world is going. On the other hand, veterans shouldn’t have to wait for a job. So one of our biggest challenges is, how do you take so many years of on-the-ground experience and compare that with a degree that may have nothing to do with the work?”

On continuing her work after leaving the White House: “I want to continue to lift up these stories so that the country doesn’t forget. And my hope is that whoever lives in this White House in the coming years will find a way to continue these efforts [and make them] a permanent part of the government role. We believe that efforts of Joining Forces should last far beyond this administration; that, you know the spotlight we put on these families, these issues and our services members should be something that we do forever and across party lines.”

On if Sasha and Malia wanted to be in the military: “I would support them in whatever they chose to do and I’d be honored to be a proud Blue Star mom.”

President Barack Obama Says Mistrust of Police is Corroding Society

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hold hands while waving hello to the crowd at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Phoenix Awards dinner on Saturday (September 27) in Washington, DC.

The annual conference brings together activists, politicians and business leaders to discuss public policy impacting Black communities in America and abroad.

“Too many young men of color feel targeted by law enforcement — guilty of walking while black or driving while black, judged by stereotypes that fuel fear and resentment and hopelessness,” the President said in his speech, referring to the August 9 shooting of Michael Brown in Missouri. “We will miss him badly,” adding that “a gulf of mistrust” invades communities. “That is not the society we want. It’s not the society that our children deserve.”

FYI: The First Lady is wearing a Bibhu Mohapatra dress.
