The War on Terror Combat Litigation serves U.S. Military Veterans/U.S. Government Contractors and their families who participated in combat operations in the Afghanistan conflict (2001-2017) or the Iraq conflict (2003-2011). To be eligible to be represented by legal counsel in this case, a candidate must have been either killed or wounded by enemy action in either Afghanistan or Iraq. Methods of enemy engagement include, but are not limited to, Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), Rocket/Mortar fire, Sniper Fire or Complex Close Ambush.

Why this litigation now and who is it against?

For those who have done combat deployments in support of the War on Terror, no two deployments have ever looked the same. Every year brought more complexities to the battlefield that didn’t exist the deployment before. In large part, the support and facilitation efforts of the Islamic Republic of Iran who uses elements of its strategic power as a State Sponsor of Terror made the battlefield a more dangerous and complex place to operate. Since the inception of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979, Iran has sought to prosecute a proxy war against the United States and our allies/partners by pursuing an indirect method of engagement centering on the use of asymmetric conflict. A critical tactic used to support Iranian regional strategic objectives is the use of Terrorism against American Service Members and Contractors. Using a similar operational approach of “by, with, and through,” agents of Iran armed proxy forces and facilitated kinetic actions on the battlefield to kill or injure those supporting security and stability operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
