Carly's real life dad, an Air Force Colonel, is currently serving overseas. Two other cast members also have parents serving in the military.

"I mean, I have to be the bigger man to take the place for the household, because I got to watch my little sister and make sure my mom stays happy", said Antonio whose father is a command sergeant major in Afghanistan and mother is a retired as a staff sergeant.
The first lady asked the Hayfield students to rally around their friends and fellow classmates with families in the military.
"Can we get that commitment from you guys here?", Mrs. Obama asked to a resounding 'Yes!' from the Hayfield students.
The first lady and iCarly cast members did a live PSA taping in support of US military families that will also air during the January 16 episode of 'iMeet the First Lady' on Nickelodeon.
Mrs. O. isn't the first FLOTUS to appear on a TV sitcom. Back in November we featured First Lady Betty Ford in an episode of the Mary Tyler Moore. (Take a watch). First Lady Nancy Reagan appeared on an episode of Different Strokes back in the '80s promoting her 'Say No To Drugs' campaign.
Dreams Do Come True.
The first lady and the students at Hayfield held a question and answer segment where questions where fielded for both the cast members and the first lady.

In almost prophetically answered fashion, the first lady responded, "I've always wanted to fly. I've always had dreams about flying", said the first lady. "You could go anywhere on a dime and feel so free."
We'll point out here that the first lady does, in fact, fly. She does so aboard Marine and Air Force One, and she does go anywhere - having traveled the world since becoming first lady. Some argue that she even flys on a dime - the taxpayer's dime. Some say she already is a superpower. We'll add one more. A definite force to be reckoned with.
"Yeah, I'd fly", said Mrs. Obama.
Dream big folks. Dream big.
