NAELA Pays Tribute on Veterans Day

Association of Attorneys Serving Older Americans and People with Disabilities Observes National Holiday Recognizing Veterans for Their Service

Washington, DC — On November 11, Americans will honor military service men and women across the country to thank them for their service. The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) recognizes veterans not only on this day, but throughout the year by assisting veterans and their families in obtaining their hard-earned public service benefits.

“Navigating veterans’ benefits can be overwhelming at times, and NAELA member attorneys are dedicated to helping clients and their families feel more at ease,” said NAELA President Letha Sgritta McDowell, CELA, CAP.
