First Lady Michelle Obama invited military families to the White House on November 10, 2014 for a special screening of a Veteran's Day episode of Disney Junior's Doc McStuffins as part of the Joining Forces initiative. The episode, which aired on the Disney Channel today, November 11, 2014 is about the emotions children face when one of their parents or caregivers is deployed.
The episode is titled Training Army Al. Here's a description from Disney:
"Doc McStuffins encourages her toy friends to find comfort and strength when their pal, the soldier action figure Army Al, is called to duty and will soon be separated from them, if even for a trip into the woods with Donny's scouting troop. As Lambie, Stuffy, Hallie, Chilly and Bronty fret that Al might get hurt, broken, or not come home at all, it's up to Doc to rally them to help Al be his best and to support each other."
This episode helps to continue The Walt Disney Company's legacy of supporting military families through TV programming.
