First lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey (L-R) attend an event to announce a new report regarding military spouse employment at the Pentagon Feb. 15 in Arlington, Va. The report, "Supporting our Military Families: Best Practices for Streamlining Occupational Licensing Across State Lines," says that military families face a greater financial burden when moving from state to state due to licensing and credentials costs. Obama, Biden, and military officials pledged to work to reduce this burden. (Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
