First Lady to help with NC 'Extreme Makeover' home


FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) -- First lady Michelle Obama will participate in an episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" that features a boarding house being built in North Carolina for homeless women veterans.

The White House says Obama will join the crew of the ABC television show Thursday to help build the new home for Barbara Marshall and the women of the Steps N Stages Jubilee House in Fayetteville.

Several families will be able to live in the new house, which will include a resource center. Marshall is a 15-year Navy veteran who is working to end homelessness among female veterans.

Obama is participating as part of Joining Forces, an initiative to support service members that also involves Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of the vice president.

The episode will air in October.

Why not

have her stay in Washington; calculate the total costs entailed in bringing her, her security, media, SUVs, and the cost to use two Air Force jets; and donate those funds to the project. Cerainly a better use of limited resources than giving her a photo opportunity.
