Legal compassion
Carl Barnes, a former sergeant who served seven years in the Army Signal Corps, thanks Capt. Tanya Mayes, a military justice and admin law attorney, assigned to the 80th Training Command Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, for the legal assistance she provided to him at Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center, Richmond, Va. Staff members of the 80th TC OSJA volunteer their services once a month at the medical center helping Wounded Warriors and veterans who qualify for legal benefits. Mayes lead an effort to establish the clinic after her husband, Raymond Pacheco, a nurse at the medical center, told her that a significant number of his patients needed legal assistance.
