Michelle Obama will visit RAF Mildenhall on Sunday as part of a four-day trip to England.

The American First Lady will greet military families stationed at the Suffolk base, following an initiative launched last year to recognise and honour relatives of those on the front line.

Joining Forces has since seen Americans rally around military families, with commitments from communities, businesses, schools, faith groups, charities and individuals.

RAF Mildenhall will be the final public stop on the trip, which begins on Thursday, during which the First Lady will take in the Olympic Games and lead the presidential delegation to Friday’s opening ceremony.
