Thanks to the incredible help of RedRoom.com, I was able to submit an article for AOL Jobs' support of Military Families Week
I very much appreciated the opportunity to share information and advice with military personnel who will be looking for jobs after they have completed their service commitment.
Here's how the AOL Jobs' article begins:
In 1970 I was a new Mrs. Lieutenant and accompanied my ROTC husband to Ft. Knox, Ky., to Armor Officers Basic. I didn't try to get a job then because I knew it was only for nine weeks – and it turned out my time was occupied with a program to train us on how to be good officers' wives.
When my husband and I next arrived in Baltimore for his military intelligence training at Ft. Holabird, I did see about getting a job. I have a clear memory of that moment 41 years ago when a hiring person told me I didn't have to worry about taking a job only for a short period – men did this all the time. But I didn't find a job
