We often comment on the First Lady's style, but today's post reminds us that the First Lady isn't just a fashion icon. She is every bit the sharp, well-educated professional that her husband is.

So make no mistake about it, in the coming years, more and more of our men and women in uniform will leave the military with the skills and opportunities they need to thrive in this growing workforce. But, ultimately, today’s commitment isn’t just about putting high-skilled individuals into work in high-paying careers. It’s also about providing our companies with the very best workers so that they can keep growing, and they can keep creating even more jobs and strengthening our economy for decades to come.
