Russ's Military Service

Video transcript:

A lot of these videos talked about different legal advice, legal issues, I would like to talk a little bit about military service. As I said earlier, I was a captain and a Judge Advocate General’s Corps of the United States Army. I worked there for three years. My primary responsibility initially was taking care of individuals who were being medically boarded out of the military. This was called a physical evaluation board. In the military, if you have sustained an injury and it is service connected, you may be entitled to receive a rating for your disability. If you do not believe that rating is sufficient, you can go to the board and ask for an increase rating. My job was basically to represent those service members in that board in order for them to obtain the rating which they felt they deserve. I was also in charge of legal assistance. Basically in the military, you are entitled to receive free legal advice, free legal assistance and the division I was in charge of was one of the largest in San Antonio.

Now, why am I telling you this? Basically is because I have a belief that military service is essential. I think everyone in the United States at some point should do a year of some type of service whether it be in the military, the peace corps, community service, something along those lines. I have a large family history when it comes to military service. My father was a prisoner of war in World War II. My uncle died at Normandy. I had another uncle who was with Patton travelling throughout Northern Africa and Europe so it is something that our family takes very seriously and I believe that one of my best experiences in my life was representing those service members when I first became an attorney and I think that gave me a door for what I wanted to do in the future and that is help injured individuals and that is why I do what I do when I came back to Ohio. So while this Page may not be anything with regard to legal advice, I just kind of want to share my views and my thoughts on military service and how invaluable it is for us. Thank you.
