National Veterans Legal Services Program

About the National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP)

As the voice of veterans’ rights for the last 25 years, the National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) works to ensure that the U.S. government keeps its pact with our nation’s 25 million veterans. NVLSP is an independent nonprofit veterans service organization that has assisted veterans and their advocates since 1980.

As a conduit for change against unfair government practices, NVLSP has been instrumental in the passage of landmark veterans’ rights legislation. Lawsuits brought by NVLSP attorneys have forced the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in benefits to veterans and their families.

NVLSP recruits, trains, and assists thousands of volunteer lawyers and veterans’ advocates. Our publications empower veterans, their families, and their advocates to obtain the benefits they’re entitled to by clearly outlining their rights under the law.

In 2008, NVLSP launched the Lawyers Serving Warriors® program, offering pro-bono legal help to veterans serving in Iraq and Afghanistan facing administrative separation, going through a mental evaluation board or physical evaluation board, received an inappropriate discharge characterization, filed a claim with the VA for disability compensation, or having difficulty with a claim under Traumatic Servicemembers Life Insurance.

Three veterans assisted by the National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) talk about their experiences and how this nonprofit legal advocacy organizations helped them. Two disabled Vietnam veterans discuss how sick they became after being exposed to Agent Orange while in the military and how NVLSP helped them finally receive the VA disability benefits they are entitled to, thanks to the Nehmer class action lawsuit that NVLSP filed and monitors to this day. A Special Forces soldier who served multiple tours in Iraq admits that he was pessimistic about how his benefits case would turn out, and was surprised by the positive outcome NVLSP attorneys won. All of NVLSP’s legal assistance to veterans and their families is provided free of charge.

Crete Carrier

Our military program here at Crete has been in development for quite a while now. Over the last couple of years, for sure, it’s come a long way. The Patriot Fleet represents all of our veterans that have served, past present and will serve in the future. They’re honoring the military. They did these trucks up for them to say thank you for all of your sacrifice. When I first saw the truck, I was amazed! For me, the part that stood out the most was that all branches of service have been represented by their seals on the side of the truck. Also, on a personal side, the silhouette of the soldier, or service member, in full battle-rattle; it represents all of our sons and daughters who have been deployed in defense of this great nation. It’s an honor to be chosen out of all these other military personnel that work for Crete, and to be able to drive one of these really nice trucks. I can’t wait to get behind the wheel. My favorite part of the truck here: the first thing that I noticed today when I rolled through from Omaha was the eagle on top of the truck. It represents freedom. The eagle has always been a symbol of freedom and it’s just… words can’t describe it. I’m very honored and very humbled to represent my brothers and sisters that have served this country in uniform. Making a military transition to a civilian job is one of the scariest things in the world to a sailor, Marine, soldier and airmen because we don’t know what to expect out there. And with Crete it’s pretty dog-gone easy, because with Crete they help us, they help us get started out here. They tell us what they want from us. I guess I keep coming back to that because Crete is well structured just like when I was in the military. When we get out of the military we don’t think about the things that we need, but one of the things that we really need is benefits. So the benefits are good here. My transition from the military to Crete Carrier Corporation was very smooth. I had the opportunity to get indoctrinated into Crete through eight weeks of training with my trainer. At which time he took me out, he taught me about driving a truck. He taught me about living the life of a truck driver, and really made the transition smooth for me. He didn’t push. He taught, coached and mentored at my pace. If you’re coming out of the military and you’re looking for a stable career, Crete Carrier is the place to come.
