First Lady Diary: Giving Thanks on Veteran's Day

First Lady Michelle Obama made a surprise visit to Ramstein's Air Base in Germany today, where she joined 200 soldiers for a special Veteran's Day meal -- even lending a hand in the cafeteria line to help serve the young men and women and their families.
