The 95th Annual American Legion National Convention kicks off this weekend in Houston. The convention takes place from August 23rd to August 29th.
Around 9,000 American Legion family members will attend to help further their cause of patriotism and support for servicemen and women, past and present.
Planned events include the annual business meeting as well as special activities such as a parade, patriotic memorial service, exhibits, color guard, band contests, receptions, and banquets. Speakers include U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, former POW Michael Durant, and members of Congress.
Sokolove Law will be in Houston as a returning sponsor of the convention. The Sokolove Law team will be at Booth #338 to talk with veterans and spread 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.
Sokolove Law thanks veterans for their service to our country. Please stop by the booth if you are in Houston to meet our team and pick up helpful resources. We always appreciate meeting and talking with our wartime heroes and their families.
