Joining Forces -- Hire A Veteran Today!

Good afternoon my lovelies! Happy Veterans day! Today's post is a tribute to the veterans that have served and are still serving our country today to keep my freedom free. For all of your sacrifices that you have made, I would like to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart! I can't imagine being separated from my family and seeing the things that you all have seen.

To all of my business owners, I would like to tell you a little bit about a white house initiative that started a few years ago that is working to ensure that all veterans, service members, and their families have the tools to be successful in life. This program is called the Joining Forces Initiative. In 2011, Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden came together to launch Joining Forces to rally around service members, veterans, and their families to focus on employment, education, and wellness opportunities. This program is dedicated to raising awareness for how these three major areas affect the nation's communities every day and are particularly focused on those that have served and are serving.

With the employment aspect, Joining Forces is looking to expand career development opportunities and employment for veterans and military spouses. It also looks to show off the skills, experience, and dedication of service members and create greater connections between the American public and the military.

In the education aspect, the initiative is focused on promoting expanded education opportunities that increase job training opportunities and ease the transferability for military-connected students.

Lastly, the wellness aspect calls  attention to the critical issues facing veterans and military families. It also is looking to expand access to wellness programs and expand resources for military spouses and families.

There are plenty of ways to get involved in this initiative, and the first step is to explore the website and see how you can benefit a service member or veteran by going to http://www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces. You can also support joining forces by adding a Joining Forces Button/Banner onto your website to bring more attention to this fantastic initiative to thank them for their service.

Thank you all for reading, and again thank you to those who put your lives on the line for mine. :) Have a great day!
