First Lady To Visit Camp Pendleton With Sen. Barbara Boxer

First lady Michelle Obama and Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., will visit Camp Pendleton Sunday as part of the first lady's advocacy campaign on behalf of the nation's military families.

Obama will travel to the northern San Diego County U.S. Marine Corps station to meet privately with service personnel and their loved ones and make a public address, according to administration officials.

Boxer is also slated to meet privately with military families and deliver remarks thanking service members, according to her office.

Obama has issued a "national call to action" to address the "unique challenges" facing military families, to "recognize and tap their skills, strength and commitment to service," to ensure that "their voices are heard inside the administration" and to build stronger civilian-military community ties, an aide said.
