Veterans Day 2012

Dear Editor,

As Nov. 11 marks the observance of Veterans Day, the Texas Access to Justice Commission and Foundation join in expressing our gratitude for America’s veterans for their service and sacrifice for our freedoms.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Texas has the second highest veteran population, with 1.7 million veterans. These brave men and women deserve our appreciation for their honorable duty, and we encourage everyone to express their thankfulness to our state’s veterans.

Over the past three years, the Texas Access to Justice Commission and Foundation have raised and awarded grants in excess of $1 million for legal services for veterans.  During this month, and throughout the year, veteran’s legal clinics are held across the state to increase access to justice for all Texas veterans who have sacrificed so much.  Every day, legal aid and pro bono lawyers come to the aid of veterans who are wrongly denied critical medical care, disability and other benefits, or need help with family matters arising from deployments.   

On behalf of the Texas Access to Justice Commission and Foundation, I would like to thank the more than one million Texans who have made sacrifices to serve our country.

Sincerely,
Justice Nathan L. Hecht
Supreme Court liaison
Texas Access to Justice Commission & Foundation
