Veterans Initiative

NLSLA’s Veterans Initiative is a collaborative effort to address veterans’ legal needs and increase their access to VA benefits and support services.

Many veterans received undesirable discharges for behaviors later identified as part of PTSD or other service-related trauma. They have struggled without the resources they need to lead stable lives.

In Los Angeles County, thousands of veterans are potentially eligible for VA benefits and discharge upgrades.

If you experienced the physical or mental trauma associated with service and received an undesirable discharge, or need help with Veteran Disability Benefits or Veteran Pension, call our Hotline for help.
