Nearly a year after he was relieved of command in Afghanistan, retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal is joining the Obama administration.
McChrystal will lead an advisory board overseeing a White House initiative supporting military families. The Joint Forces program will be led by Michelle Obama and Jill Biden. The program will focus on mobilizing communities, businesses and the government to assist the families of those serving their country.
The first lady's office says the initiative will be announced at the White House on Tuesday.
McChrystal resigned after he and his aides were quoted in a Rolling Stone article as being dismissive of their civilian bosses.
