First Lady, Jill Biden To Visit Fort Campbell Wednesday

CREATED Apr 21, 2014

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - First lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden are scheduled to visit Fort Campbell to speak with soldiers and their families at a jobs and career fair.

Obama and Biden are expected to be at the military post on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line on Wednesday to deliver remarks to more than 1,000 service members and military spouses and over 100 employers at the Fort Campbell Veterans Jobs Summit and Career Forum.

The summit is a public, private, and nonprofit sector collaboration that, in coordination with the active duty military, aims to provide transitioning service members with employment resources.

During the meeting, Obama and Biden will also announce new government tools designed to simplify job hunting for veterans, transitioning service members, National Guard members, Reserve components and military spouses.
