MRS. OBAMA: Because you guys are some pretty special boys and girls, did you know that?

CHILD: Yes!

MRS. OBAMA: Yes, you should know that. (Laughter.) You guys are pretty special, so we wanted to do something special for you guys on Veterans Day. How many people know that Veterans Day is coming up? And what do we celebrate on Veterans Day?

CHILD: Daddy!

MRS. OBAMA: Daddies. (Laughter.) Thats right.

CHILD: And mamas.

MRS. OBAMA: And mamas. On Veterans Day, we celebrate families like yours because your moms and dads, and maybe for some of you your grandparents, or aunts or uncles, or brothers and sisters are serving our country, and theyre making sure its safe for everybody in this country. And were so proud of them, but, more importantly, were proud of you all. Because you know what? You guys are heroes, too. Because your moms and dads couldnt do what they do unless you were really smart, really kind, and really patient. Because you guys are sacrificing just as much as your moms and dads are, and we are so very, very proud of you. Do you know that?

CHILD: Woo hoo!

MRS. OBAMA: Yes, woo for you guys! (Laughter.) And Doc McStuffins came all the way here because shes proud of you, too. Yes. She knows that you guys are heroes just like shes a hero, all right? And I want you guys to remember that -- that were all so proud of you, and youre so special.

So we wanted to celebrate with you by showing you an episode of Doc McStuffins. (Applause.) So thats whats coming up next, okay? So is everybody ready to see the episode?

CHILDREN: Yes!

MRS. OBAMA: Wait, wait, I cant hear -- I dont know. I dont know if youre excited enough. Lets hear it -- are you ready to see Doc McStuffins? (Applause.) Do you think thats good enough, Doc Mcstuffins? Do you think we should show it to them? Yes! Its time! All right.

So without further ado, I give to you Doc McStuffins. Have fun. (Applause.) Bye!
