Legal Aid to Vets and Democracy in Burma
Approximately one million veterans have returned home injured from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but many have legal battles still to fight. This hour we’ll talk about an Ohio fellowship that pairs lawyers with vets who need legal aid. Then we’ll discuss the challenges of bringing democracy to Myanmar, a country once known as the “jewel of Asia.” Â For more information visit www.ohiolegalservices.org.
