As part of the White House’s new “Joining Forces” campaign to rally support for service members and their families, First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden and Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis visited the Sears Distribution Center in Columbus, Ohio today.
As shown in the clip above, they applauded the retailer’s ongoing commitment to the military, and a new “Permanent Change of Duty Station” policy that enhances the company’s recruiting and HR programs that already support miltary service members and their families.[more]
The Joining Forces campaign launched on April 12th to encourage businesses, individuals and institutions to do more to help service members and their families. It’s described as the first national initiative in the US “to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.”
