On March 10th, Mid-Missouri Legal Services’ own Executive Director, Susan Lutton, discussed how MMLS helps veterans and military families as part of a panel of experts on veteran issues at a congressional briefing in Washington, D.C. The briefing was co-hosted by Senators Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Patty Murray (D-WA).

Through a unique partnership with the local VA hospital in Columbia, MMLS is able to provide a walk-in clinic for veterans and their families to provide assistance and resources for various legal issues. During her discussion, Ms. Lutton explained how the project provides a much needed and important service – and importance of the legal aid programs – to veterans.
