Mobile Legal Clinic to Help Veterans
Rina Miller (2009-09-20)

ANN ARBOR, MI (Michigan Radio) – A traveling legal clinic for veterans is coming to Southeast Michigan.

Project Salute is a mobile law office.

It’s staffed by attorneys and law students who volunteer their time to help low-income veterans with their disability and pension benefits claims.

Bob Walsh is a professor at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. He says the federal system has a backlog of about a million cases.

Walsh says there are still many World War Two, Korean and Vietnam War veterans trying to get their benefits.

“There simply isn’t any excuse. There’s no excuse for not cleaning up this mess and taking care of these men and women,” Walsh says.

Project Salute will visit Wayne on Wednesday, Sept. 23, Highland Park on Saturday, Sept. 26, and Detroit on September 28.

Veterans or their families are encouraged to come in person, but the clinic also offers phone interviews.”
