| No Comments

WASHINGTON--First Lady Michelle Obama on Wednesday delivers a speech about boosting help to the nations military and their families--her "Joining Forces" program--to CEOs of the Business Roundtable. The chairman of the group is W. James McNerney, Chairman, President & CEO of the Chicago-based Boeing Company.

From the White House: "The First Lady's remarks will continue her call on the private sector to hire America's veterans and military spouses, and help them reach their full potential within America's companies.

"This year, with the Iraq War over and the war in Afghanistan drawing to a close, Mrs. Obama will make the case that it has never been more important to join together and help our veterans and military spouses find employment and build their careers, especially the more than one million veterans who will be hanging up their uniforms and transitioning back to civilian life in the coming years."
