Op-Ed: Post COVID-19 Return to Normal Carries Added Complexity for Texas Veterans
In his recent guest column in The Lufkin Daily News, Nathan L. Hecht of the Supreme Court of Texas has co-authored a piece on how civil legal aid can be used to help veterans in a post-Covid-19 environment.
Excerpted from the piece:
“One may easily overlook the myriad complications veterans face when they come home — landlord/tenant disputes, child custody issues, Veterans Affairs benefits and more are often waiting for them on the other side of serving our country.
Various groups around the state are devoted to working on behalf of service men and women, but there is always more that can be done to protect their access to civil legal services when facing difficulties such as threats of eviction or the inability to access medical care. This legal aid is crucial for veterans as they transition back into civilian life — especially during a global pandemic.”
