Some great front-page news: How often can you say that?
But that’s exactly what we had in yesterday’s Arizona Republic, where we learned that attorney Roger Ferland had been honored as the Outstanding Disabled Vet of the Year by the National Disabled Veterans of America.
The story, aptly titled “Phoenix veteran keeps giving back,” is here.
He also was a force for good in the Bar’s participation in the initiative called Army One Source, a national program to recruit volunteer lawyers. Through the leadership of Roger, Arizona yielded the highest number of volunteer lawyers of any participating state. You can read more about that program here.
Congratulations to Roger Ferland, and thank you for your service.
And a hat-tip to John Phelps for alerting me to this great news.Follow @azatty
