WEST TEXAS - Texas has the second highest population of veterans in the nation. Legal issues are the top unmet need of veterans. That's why this week there is a statewide effort to bring legal aid to vets.
"Veterans in Texas need legal aid because the veteran population has a high percentage of individuals who are low income and that is a statewide and also a nation wide problem," said Cassandra Champion, Regional Director and Veterans Rights Attorney for the Texas Civil Rights Project.
