The BADC Military Committee would like to remind you to thank your veterans and service members for their service.
A few ways you can support your service members and veterans are listed below.
- Claims Assistance Network (VCAN): ABA VCAN is a pilot program in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that provides pro bono volunteer opportunities for lawyers to help veterans with the preparation and completion of claims for disability compensation benefits currently pending with VA. Attorneys can sign up and view VCAN’s free training webinar on www.ABAVCAN.org.
- ABA Home Front: ABA Home Front is an online resource, on www.ABAHomeFront.org, designed to help military members, veterans, and their families find legal information, referrals, and representation for civil legal matters. They may use the (1) the Directory of Programs to find a state-by-state guide of legal resources available in their area, and (2) the Information Center for information about their legal rights and responsibilities.
- VSO Search Page: Veterans can appoint a VA-recognized Veterans Service Organization (VSO) that will help them for free throughout the entire benefits claims process with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Visit: http://www.ebenefits.va.gov, click on “View all Features,” and then “Find or View Your Representative for VA Claims” to find and select a local representative.
