Clinic hours are set from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. but will be extended if needed.

The clinic will be held in the St. Leo Student Activities Building, room 117. Legal help will also be available aboard the Project Salute bus parked near the Tapia Lakeside Patio at the Student Community Center.
The university has a full calendar of events planned in observation of its 40th anniversary of serving the military.
