The big lie about veterans continues full speed ahead. This is part of an e-mail to its members from the Rhode Island Bar Association:
In honor of the Veterans Day celebration on Monday, November 11th, I hope you will consider joining our Bar’s US Armed Forces Legal Services Project. Since this project began in 2009, over 500 veterans, active military personnel and their families sought and received quality legal assistance through this important Rhode Island Bar Association Pro Bono Program.
Military personnel serve us all. It is important that we stop and remember, especially on November 11th, those who are willing to defend our freedom. Many who contact us for assistance face pre/post deployment legal issues. The demand for help through this program has grown, and we are always in need of additional volunteers. Opportunities exist in almost every area of civil law. Please note the current cases needing immediate placement are listed here.
I have put the big lie in bold print. If the military defends our freedom, then why do lawyers in Rhode Island have to represent people charged with drug crimes? Americans should be free to use drugs. Looks like the military is not doing its job.11:19 am on November 7, 2013 Email Laurence M. Vance
