BALTIMORE, MD (May 25, 2007) - With the recent and future planned deployments of National Guard members and reservists, the Office of the Attorney General has compiled a fact sheet detailing the rights and protections available to service members.

“When called to serve our country, every member of the National Guard and reserve is entitled to certain protections under the law,” said Attorney General Gansler. “My office has compiled a fact sheet detailing in simple terms the protections afforded service members and small business owners affected by the deployment.”

The fact sheet also contains useful contact information and websites of state and federal agencies. National Guard members and reservists have protections in terms of employment, financial transactions, and voting.
