Veterans Legal Clinic helps vet get permanent disability

Monday, February 17, 2020

Congratulations to third-year students Alanna Pierce and Anne M. Reynolds who helped a veteran establish permanent and total disability through their work in the Veterans Legal Clinic. Gulf War Era veteran Hunter Breedlove served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 2011 to 2013. After discharge, he began to receive disability compensation for chronic posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) resulting from his service. But in November 2018, the Veterans Benefits Administration proposed to reduce those payments. Working under the supervision of clinic attorney Kelly Parker, the students persuaded the VA that the veteran’s PTSD merited full compensation. This win gives Breedlove permanent disability and entitles him to claim educational assistance for his children.
