Michelle Obama says a pledge by the construction industry to hire 100,000 veterans by 2019 isn't only the right thing to do, it's a smart thing for business. Some 100 companies and associations in the construction field are announcing their veterans' hiring commitments on Monday, Feb. 10, 2014, at a conference organized by the Labor Department and the initiative Joining Forces. Joining Forces is a nationwide effort launched in 2011 by Mrs. Obama and the vice president's wife to rally the nation around military veterans. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
