The first lady's office said the American Society of Travel Agents was creating a coalition to help veterans and military spouses get jobs in the travel industry and hang on to them as families are transferred to different military bases.

Travel agencies still exist but it’s been a dead-end since the internet got up to speed almost 20 years ago... Might as well offer vets a job manufacturing buggy whips.

More pitiful and economically dangerous liberal chaotic thinking.

The median household income in the US is $52,026, meaning that for every $1 million the government wastes, it consumes and destroys the annual income of about 20 entire families.

BHO’s obscene budget consumes and destroys the wealth necessary to hire 3,000 people in just a few short hours.

It’s part of her advocacy for Military families “Joining Forces”. This is designed to make her look like she really cares about the military. Jill Biden is part of it as well but they always kind of put the spotlight on Mrs. Obama.
I think it is just payback for her husband for legislation they want passed like removing the travel restricitons to Cuba.

If she and he husband would just promise to move to some other country you could muster a small ARMY just to help them pack!

Her Royal Buttness (snicker) is bigger and most likely stronger than the nimrod elected....so yeah, I’d say she has the leverage - in a variety of ways.

They need at least that many vacation planners in the White House to take care of her travel
