WASHINGTON – Michelle Obama is making a cameo appearance in support of military families on an upcoming episode of the CBS hit drama “NCIS.”

The network says the episode, airing May 3, features the first lady welcoming NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, played by Mark Harmon, and the wife of a Marine to the White House for a “Joining Forces” discussion with military spouses.

Joining Forces is the nationwide initiative that Mrs. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Jill, launched in 2011 to support service members, veterans and their families.
