Jill Biden hits South Florida

Vice President Joe Biden's wife Jill Biden will travel to South Florida this week to deliver the commencement address Friday afternoon at Broward College. Biden, an educator for more than 30 years, has taught English in community colleges for the past 18 years and continues to teach at a community college in Northern Virginia. 

Biden on Thursday will visit Coast Guard Base Miami Beach for a discussion with spouses of Coast Guard members.  Biden and First Lady Michelle Obama have a major initiative to engage with military families -- they just celebrated the one-year anniversary of Joining Forces, their effort to honor, recognize and serve veterans, service members and military families.
