President Obama has now delivered his speech on a new push to find veteran's private sector jobs. Here's my recap:
Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama outlined a new initiative Friday that aims to help former members of the military find private sector jobs, part of his renewed job creation effort focusing on unemployed veterans.
In front of 300 active service members and their families at the Washington Navy Yard, the president laid out a series of reforms that his administration is pledging will better prepare service members for the civilian work force and encourage employers to hire recent veterans.
"Our companies need skilled workers like our veterans to help them grow and there is no reason why we can't connect the two," said Obama, who was introduced by Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
