Last week, I went back to the White House, this time for an exclusive sit-down interview with First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. The interview was supposed to focus on the Joining Forces initiative and military families, in honor of Veterans' Day, but Yahoo! and Yahoo! Shine readers submitted nearly 5,000 questions for me to pour over, so I was able to touch on a few other topics as well.

Here's a look at the segments, which went live on today:

Two more segments go live on Veteran's Day. In them, I ask the First Lady how she'd react if her daughters wanted to join the armed forces, and Dr. Biden (a Blue Star mom herself) talks about ways civilians can help military families. You can watch those here: Senior editor Lylah M. Alphonse interviews first lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden.

Of course, there are a few posts to go with the videos as well:

What a wonderful interview! Informative, light, relaxed, human.
