First Command Financial Services, Inc. joins U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's campaign.
FORT WORTH, Texas: First Command Financial Services, Inc. joined the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes Hiring 100,000 Military Spouses campaign.
The three-year campaign will raise awareness of military spouse unemployment and encourage employers to make military spouse hiring commitments, ultimately resulting in a combined 100,000 military spouses hired by the end of 2021. Even as the job market grows, military spouses continue to face unemployment rates four times the national average, according to Hiring Our Heroes. As a result, many military families find themselves facing the tough decision to either forego two incomes or leave military service - a choice that ultimately hurts the military's ability to retain service members with families.
Eric Eversole, president of Hiring Our Heroes and vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said, "This campaign is a call to action for American businesses to make military spouse employment a top priority, and by joining the Hiring 100,000 Military Spouses campaign, First Command is doing just that." First Command's commitment to hiring military spouses is underscored by the recognition that these women and men are the key financial decision makers for their families and face unique challenges in their pursuit of meaningful careers.
