Briefly the purpose of the committee was to be sure that the members of the armed forces, both who were serving in this state on leave, or are acquainted with death and loss in another state, and those of this state who are serving throughout the world, that they have the means of reaching legal services when they need them. The work of the committee is so that members of the armed services who were residents of the state of Washington, who have never had any contact with a lawyer and need one, go to a legal officer in the service, and that legal officer then does not give him advice but has the means before him to get that man in touch with a lawyer.
