    This 1.75-hour presentation - from Ms. Zaira Solano of the Solano Law Firm LLC, Mr. Peter Katson from the Pentagon Joint Legal Assistance Office, and Ms. Melissa Halsey from the Army Legal Assistance Policy Division - will cover a variety of issues involving immigration benefits, a current and important legal concern for many servicemembers and their families.
