Why Michelle Obama praises "American Sniper"

The first lady spoke in Washington Friday during the launch of “6 Certified,” an initiative toward accurate portrayals of veterans and military families in movies and television. The program is part of a nationwide veterans campaign called Got Your 6, which is military slang for “I’ve got your back.”

“While I know there have been critics, I felt that, more often than not, this film touches on many of the emotions and experiences that I’ve heard firsthand from military families over these past few years,” Mrs. Obama said at the event.
