AM2022 Committee on Veterans

AM2022 Committee on Veterans


Topics to be Included:

Cultural Competency: Less than one half of one percent of Americans are currently serving in the military and veterans make up only approximately 7% of the population. These factors in conjunction with the complexities of military life can make it extremely difficult for a majority civilian population to relate to the military experience/culture. An understanding of military culture with its emphasis on “mission,” “others before self” and often bluntness/aggression is essential to working with the military/veteran client.

Military Speak: The military/veteran community speaks in a labyrinth of jargon/acronyms/code which is difficult for the non-veteran to understand. This segment will explore some of the more common military terminology and provide a primer for the nonveteran lawyer working with the military/veteran client.
