WASHINGTON - Michelle Obama is going on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

The White House says the first lady is returning to her Chicago hometown today to tape one of the last original episodes of Winfrey's nationally syndicated talk show.

Mrs. Obama will discuss plans to launch a nationwide campaign to support families with someone in the military.

The first lady has become an advocate for military families. She has traveled to military installations to talk with service members about their needs and concerns and has urged Americans to volunteer time to help them.

The program is scheduled to air Thursday.

Winfrey is ending her successful talk show at the end of the season after 25 years.
