President Obama to make job announcement regarding veterans today

Today, President Obama and Vice President Biden will join their wives to make an announcement about jobs for veterans and military spouses.

These jobs are a partnership between Joining Forces and American businesses.  
 
The President is also expected to talk about the progress that has been made in hiring and training vets and spouses across the country.
 
Cory Seale, a retired vet, was in the Army for four years and in the Coast Guard for four years. 
 
Seale decided to use the GI bill to go back to school.  
 
But without any experience, Seale said he found himself still looking for work. 
 
"I thought for a long time, I thought that the VA, instead of eating their money on the GI bill for a lot of people like me. I feel I wasted $40,000, is to get with some health care providers or whatever the person is studying and so there can be an internship to go along with your money."
 
President Obama will make the announcement at 11:15 a.m. from the White House.
