While a young Air Force servicemember was deployed in Afghanistan, his wife informed him that she wanted a divorce in Colorado. The stress that the servicemember was experiencing in Afghanistan was compounded by this situation, so he sought help to finalize the divorce. He visited a JAG in Afghanistan, who referred this case to the ABA Military Pro Bono Project, which located a volunteer attorney in Colorado to help. The attorney provided pro bono assistance to complete the divorce. The servicemember was then able to better focus on his mission in Afghanistan.
