TRANSCRIPT: Elaine Brye Introduces Michelle Obama at DNC

Below are the remarks of Elaine Brye, as prepared for delivery. Brye introduced First Lady Michelle Obama at the 2012 DNC:

"Wow! What's a mom like me doing in a place like this?

I'm not even a political person. But what I am is a military mom. My husband and I are so proud of our five kids. One each in the Army, the Navy, the Air Force and the Marines. Our youngest is still in high school, and yes — we're hoping he'll join the Coast Guard. They are a mom's most precious treasures.

I don't know when I'm going to get them all together again because someone's always deploying. But because of Dr. Biden and the first lady, our lives are a little bit easier. Along with President Obama, they have made helping military families a top priority. They've brought together the American people, including thousands of businesses, to become part of a nationwide support network. It is honor and respect in action that warms this mother's heart.

Last December, I wrote Michelle Obama a Christmas card, just a mom-to-mom note to say thank you for caring. The first lady not only read my letter — she invited me and my husband to the White House. It was an amazing experience. But what's even more amazing is knowing that our commander in chief and first lady are thinking about families like mine every single day.

So like I said, I'm not a political person. But I'm a mom, and if someone is there for my family and families like mine, then I'll be there for them. That's why I'm proud to introduce my fellow mom and our first lady, Michelle Obama."
