Steven Spielberg joins the three PSAs

Hollywood heavyweights have come together for Michelle Obama and Jill Biden’s Joining Forces initiative in a new series of PSAs.

Steven Spielberg joins Oprah Winfrey and Tom Hanks in the three PSAs to bring attention to the unique needs and strength of America’s military families.

“The entertainment community answered the Joining Forces call and has done what they do best — bring to life stories that move us,” said Obama. “Through this PSA campaign, Americans will learn more about
the unique challenges and needs of our military families, see their strength, resilience and service, and find out how they can give back to these extraordinary troops and families who have given us so much.”

“As a military mom, I know just how much it means when people reach out to show their support for our service members and their families,” adds Jill Biden, whose son served in Iraq. “The first lady and I hope that this campaign will inspire more Americans to take action and reach out to military families in their own communities around the country.”

The PSAs are the brainchild of Bruce Cohen, the Academy Award-winning producer who leads the Inter-Guild Joining Forces Task Force, an entertainment industry coalition that provides creative and production support for Joining Forces.
