To our service men and women in uniform whether past, present, or future...bless you and thank you for your service and dedication. My mother (325th Combat Support Hospital) and grandfather (WWII US Army) are both Veterans of the US Armed Services. I take great pride in being an Accredited Attorney with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. One way that we as elder law attorneys give back is by helping Veterans and their spouses obtain the financial assistance to which they are entitled.
