Highlight Your Veterans Treatment Court Program This November
Download your 2016 Veterans Day Toolkit today!
This November, our country will once again pause to honor the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces. Veterans Day—Friday, November 11, 2016—is our annual opportunity to thank our veterans for their service and acknowledge their sacrifices on our behalf.
November is the ideal time for veterans treatment courts to engage their community. This Veterans Day: Preparation, Events, & Media toolkit contains a wealth of resources to help you plan and execute events as well as educate your elected officials and the media. Veterans Day can also bring up mixed emotions, and for some it can usher in a difficult holiday season.
For these reasons, we have also included tips on ensuring your staff, participants, and mentors have the support they need.

"All of you who work in Veterans Treatment Courts are forever changing the way this nation treats veterans when their invisible wounds of war lead them astray. From coast to coast, in jurisdictions large and small, Veterans Treatment Courts are stepping up to make certain our veterans are cared for when they need it most. Throughout November I hope you take the opportunity to tell your stories of success and transformation. Let your community know the good work you are doing to serve veterans. In doing so, we will demonstrate to this nation that veterans who struggle following their service can recover and live productive lives.” - General (ret.) Barry McCaffrey
