If you’ve read my blogs in the past, you may have seen me mention that I am an associate member of the P.L. Wilson Marine Corps League here in Mobile, where I am surrounded by many remarkable Marines and service members from other branches of the military. I was lucky enough to be introduced to these people several years ago through my work as a Veterans’ disability attorney. But I joined the MCL because they quickly became my friends and heroes.
I feel privileged to listen to their stories. We laugh together – one of our Marines says that he holds the rank of an E19! He was promoted and busted down so many times it equals out! I rejoice in their good news and feel heartache for their losses. They followed my son’s journey through preparation for boot camp (giving him good AND not-so-good advice) and celebrated when he graduated to become a Sailor.
There is so much information and advertising in the air right now regarding the Camp LeJeune Justice Act, which is a part of the PACT Act, that I sometimes worry our individual Marines will be lost in the shuffle. Their tales about Camp LeJeune are what drove the initiative to pass the Act. I know that many of “my Marines” have disabilities because of their exposure at Camp LeJeune.
As always, I want to thank all our Veterans for their service to our country. I want our Veterans to know that Gardberg and Kemmerly will continue to help in any way possible. We are privileged to represent you in your fight to obtain benefits.
