Flint Hills GI Rights Hotline

The Flint Hills GI Rights Hotline, sponsored by MAPJ along with several other organizations, is a network of trained lay counselors which provides information to help GIs and their families understand their rights and options. The Hotline accepts calls regarding military regulations and options concerning the following issues: discharge status, conscientious objection, GI rights and truth in recruitment. The service is free and private. The network does not report to any military or government agency. Phone: 1-877-447-4487; Website: www.flinthillsgirights.com.
