About This Guide

This guide provides resources, both online and in print, for veterans and their families. Topics that are covered include education and employment benefits, legal aid available to veterans, and other organizations that provide aid and community support for veterans.

Texas and Federal Law

There are many laws that affect veterans. Below you will find references to a few selected areas of the Texas statutes, Texas Administrative Code, and federal statutes that govern veterans' benefits and other issues related to veterans. If you find these difficult to understand, you may want to view the “plain English” resources on this page or speak to an attorney.
