Via news talk radio yesterday, I heard an announcement by our First Lady that several large companies have pledged to hire 100,000 veterans and military spouses by 2014. No doubt it was pushed to be in effect by Veteran's Day and I think it's a very noble goal. Unfortunately, I tend to be somewhat leery of the purpose behind this. Knowing what little I do of politics, it would seem this is a very well timed publicity stunt. Oh well, regardless of the motivation, it would be excellent to have such a goal met. I trust American businesses are better at keeping promises than is the current administration.
