Washington DC 06:58 PM EDT Earlier today, I joined with First Lady Michelle Obama, to announce a major commitment by forward looking businesses that have launched an ambitious new effort to deliver more than 15,000 jobs to military spouses and veterans in the coming years.
Military families are 10 times more likely to move across state lines than civilian families.
At home jobs with flexible work schedules can also lead to better work life balance, and extend job opportunities into communities often left behind.
These companies and their associated job opportunities will also be integrated into the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), a Department of Defense-led effort with more than 100 companies in the private sector who have committed to a focused effort on military spouse employment.
