VTAC Waukegan IL: Leave no veteran behind...not in the field or back at home
I had the privilege/honor of attending the inaugural graduation ceremony of veterans court in Waukegan, IL, yesterday. Veteran's Treatment and Assistance Court (VTAC) is a program which keeps veterans out of the regular court system and connects them with treatment. Veterans charged with non-violent offenses must successfully comply with conditions imposed by VTAC. They undergo 12 - 30 months of probation before graduating. They had their first two graduates who completed this therapeutic intensive monitoring. So, they received their Quilt of Valor along with the the head of probation and the judge whom I found out were also veterans. A lot of veterans in that crowd yesterday! Their motto: Leave no veteran behind...not in the field or back at home.
