Dr. Biden and First Lady Michelle Obama created Joining Forces in 2011, a White House government initiative seeking to support families, caregivers, and surviving members of the United States Armed Forces. Upon becoming First Lady in 2021, Dr. Biden relaunched the initiative. From the Disney Parks Blog:

Support for the families of our service members and veterans, their caregivers, and survivors is a key priority of the First Lady and has been a cause that she has tirelessly worked on for more than a decade… Joining Forces focuses on military spouse employment, military child education and health and wellbeing, and we are honored that she will be accompanying us. This important event will showcase the value of military spouses and veterans in the workplace, share best hiring practices and encourage greater employment opportunities for the military and veteran community.
