Employment Law

    Several months ago, I was watching an episode of NCIS, and I saw a segment on Joining Forces.  In the NCIS episode, Gibbs meets Michelle Obama at a reception, and they discuss how Joining Forces is helping military spouses and veterans.  I became curious and decided to look up information on Joining Forces to learn more about it. Joining Forces is an initiative promoted by the White House and part of the Vow to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 to address the needs of veterans and military families with education programs, job training and placement for veterans and assistance to military families.
