Jordan is the Deputy Staff Judge Advocate of Fort Jackson.  Col. Moran and Lt. Col.

Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) Event

SALDF will be working with SQ Rescue, a local animal shelter, again this year and they are having a big adoption drive the weekend of September 12th. It will be held at the Petsmart on Two Notch Road. They need volunteers to walk the dogs and keep them hydrated as well as help passing out information, selling tshirts to raise money, and with any adoptions. Even if you can only spare an hour or two throughout the weekend, every little bit helps, and it takes some pressure off the full time volunteers. The times will be 6-9p on Friday the 12th, 11a-4p on Saturday the 13th, & 1-4p on Sunday the 15th. If you are interested or have questions, please let me know via email at barretke@email.sc.edu or Facebook at SALDF (USC LAW Chapter).
