Combat Veterans Court
If you are a combat veteran who has been or should be diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and you are now charged with committing a crime as a result of that diagnosis, should you be treated differently? We think so. If you have given your time, your effort and your mental and physical health to your country, we think your country should repay that debt by helping, not hurting you.
