Michelle Obama Announcing Jobs Website For Veterans

Posted: Updated:

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama has announced a new online effort to link soldiers leaving the military with jobs that match their skill sets.

She said Wednesday that the new Veterans Employment Center provides one-stop shopping for troops as they transition to civilian life.

The move comes as the U.S. winds down wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the administration seeks to lower unemployment among veterans.

Mrs. Obama, joined by Vice President Joe Biden's wife, Jill, made the announcement at Fort Campbell along the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.
