The 95th Annual American Legion National Convention opens today in Houston. The convention runs through August 29th and thousands of veterans and their families will be attending.
This year’s convention promises to be an eventful one. In addition to the annual business meeting, there will be a parade, patriotic memorial service, exhibits, band contests, receptions, and banquets. Other highlights include the debut of the new wartime movie Approaching Midnight, as well as an address to attendees by U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki.
Sokolove Law will be back as a Gold Sponsor of the 2013 American Legion National Convention, talking to veterans and spreading the word about the dangers of asbestos exposure, the symptoms of mesothelioma, and legal options. In the military service there is an established history of asbestos exposure, and an elevated risk of mesothelioma in the military population.
As always, Sokolove Law thanks veterans for their service to our country. We look forward to meeting and talking with our wartime heroes and their families at the convention. Please stop by Booth #338 to meet us if you will be in Houston.
