First lady announcing new hiring push for vets


The White House says Mrs. Obama will announce that the same companies have committed to hire or train an additional 250,000 veterans and military spouses by 2014. That includes hiring or training 50,000 military spouses -- and helping them keep those jobs as families move from one duty station to another.

Mrs. Obama planned to announce the new commitments at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville.
