INTRODUCTION

Serving Our Veterans

The articles in this issue of The Judges’ Journal consider the U.S. justice system’s obligations to those who have sacrificed so much for our country and offer practical ways to connect veterans with the legal services they are entitled to. Veterans often face legal problems while they are away serving or after they return home; the tools provided here can help judges protect the rights of our veterans.
