This message was sent with high importance.

Just found out some of the original message didn’t come through for some people.  Hope this goes through this time.

 

Subject: INTERVIEWS

All,

Vegas PBS is interested in doing interviews with your memberships for anyone who served during the Vietnam era. You didn’t have to serve in Vietnam as every story is important. We would also like any family member or survivors you may be in contact with as we would like to afford them the opportunity to tell their story. The Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 17 has graciously offered up their location to do the interviews. Right now, we have 1 date set with them to have our field team do the interviews. We are set for the 19th of June. The interviews will be edited down to 1 minute spots and will air during “The Vietnam War” documentary that will air in September.

Please coordinate those members who would like to come down and be interviewed. They should bring any memorabilia or photos with them to the interview as we will photograph them for inclusion in the piece. If you have people that need to interviewed either here at the station or in their homes, just let me know and I will coordinate that. Please forward any other organizations POC we can reach out to for this project.

Vegas PBS thanks you for your service and your continued support to our Veterans!

Regards,

Jim Knudsen

Attorney General Laxalt Releases Office of Military Legal Assistance @EASE Program

November 11, 2016

clip_image002

Business Case in Honor of Veterans Day November 11, 2016 (NV) Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt is pleased to announce the completion of the business case for the Office of Military Legal Assistance @EASE Program. The program was officially launched one year ago in November, 2015, and is the nation’s first attorney general-led, public-private partnership offering our military communities access to pro bono civil legal services. In practice, the program pairs military Service members in need of legal assistance with pro bono private legal counsel for civil matters including consumer fraud, military rights, immigration, landlord/tenant, predatory lending and creditor/debtor issues. The program also provides monthly workshops dedicated to drafting free wills and powers of attorney for Nevada veterans across the state.

The @EASE program strives to bolster military readiness by providing Service members with the knowledge that the program has the capacity to manage legal affairs in their absence—putting our Service members @EASE. Earlier this year, the Department of Defense named the Office a “Best Practice Program,” and recommended that the program be duplicated in states throughout the country. The program has partnered with the Nevada State Bar, County Bars and numerous statewide legal organizations to recruit more than 150 local attorneys willing to represent our Service members and their families free of charge.

“Today, on behalf of all Nevadans, I salute the millions of veterans who have dedicated their lives to protecting the life and liberty of all Americans, and hope you will join me in extending our deepest gratitude for their service,” said Attorney General Adam Laxalt. “Nevada is home to an estimated 11,400 active duty military members, 7,620 reserve members and over 228,000 veterans, and the Office of Military Legal Assistance @EASE program, through its pro bono partnerships, is proud to have helped Nevada’s Service members and veterans handle over 900 pro bono matters in its first year. With the completion of this business case, there is now empirical data justifying the need for this program and a roadmap to support efforts to form legal assistance offices in other states. It is my hope that this program will demonstrate a commitment to our military communities for years to come, and that eligible Nevadans will continue to take advantage of these services.

Services Offered

The state of Nevada currently has an active duty and veteran population of over 400,000 people. These citizens, by virtue of having served our nation and state, are eligible for pro bono representation from the Nevada Attorney General’s Office of Military Legal Assistance. Those eligible to receive assistance include active duty, reserve and National Guard service members and their spouses. The veteran community will be covered for wills and powers of attorney, and hopes to expand its services for veterans after the first year.
