Michelle Obama is teaming with Disney for a special event on Veterans Day.

The first lady will host a screening of a military-themed episode of Disney Channel's Doc McStuffins for families of veterans at the White House on Monday, Nov. 10 as part of the Joining Forces initiative.

The episode, titled "Training Army Al," includes a storyline focusing on the common emotions young children face but find difficult to express when a parent or loved one is deployed.  It will air on Veterans Day, on Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 9:30 a.m. on Disney Channel.

A Disney Publishing storybook inspired by the episode will be available beginning on Dec. 2.

Doc McStuffins centers on a 6-year-old girl who communicates with and heals stuffed animals and broken toys out of her backyard playhouse clinic. The series airs daily on Disney Channel and Disney Junior.

Chris Nee is the creator and executive producer, while Norton Virgien is director. Doc McStuffins is a production of Brown Bag Films in association with Disney Channel.

Doc McStuffins just aired an episode featuring members of the Downton Abbey cast, including Joanne Froggatt. Obama appeared as a special guest-star in May on Disney Channel's Jessie.
