Military and Veterans Committee Provides Update from on VA Benefits for LGBTQ+ Veterans

Written by National Association of Women Judges|June 28, 2024|News

Thanks to everyone who attended the NAWJ Military and Veterans Committee's recent webinar addressing Veterans Administration benefits for LGBTQ+ military veterans and their families.  This link will take you to an article from CNN that indicates that the Biden administration may shortly issue pardons for military members convicted of violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Article 125, Sodomy.  Those convictions included harsh penalties and in many instances removed the opportunity for veterans convicted even of consensual sexual conduct from qualifying for veterans benefits, including medical care.

Of particular interest are the identified needs for legal support to go through the process for the veterans who may have suffered from this error of injustice.
