Legal Rights For Deployed Service Members
Members of the armed forces make great sacrifices in order to protect our nation. Recognizing these sacrifices, Congress has enacted a number of laws specifically designed to protect the civil rights of service members, both while they are on active duty and after they return to civilian life. These laws ensure that service members will be able vote while they are stationed overseas, return to their civilian employment after completing their service and have certain civil financial protections while on active duty.
