Okay so I am on a mission to stop these businesses from not hiring spouses just because we are military. I have been a military wife for almost 7 years and I have had it. Just recently I received another letter from a medical office saying my qualifications do not meet their needs. I have well over five years experience in the medical field stemming from receptionist to medical assistant, and yet three denials in a row from the same place for three different positions saying the same thing not to mention I did get an interview for one position and was told I had all the right qualifications but the doctor was concerned because I was military if I would be around for awhile. Now with this in mind we are stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. and well my husband is SF. So we aren't going anywhere anytime soon. So I sent a letter to the Human Resource department at this company( it has several different medical offices inside of this center) and now I will be writing to every congressman and woman and governor, and Senator, and newspaper and news station and even the President until something is done about this. There are things set in place for every other ethnic group or profile but where is our group to say enough is enough?
