Support Justice For Vets
At Justice For Vets, we understand that the vast majority of veterans return home strengthened by their military service. But we also know that some veterans struggle to cope with the trauma of war. Many return to their families and communities suffering from PTSD (often undiagnosed), Traumatic Brain Injury, substance abuse, and a myriad of other issues that can manifest into criminal behavior.
Justice For Vets is the only national organization exclusively committed and uniquely qualified to ensure veterans in the justice system get the treatment, benefits and services they have earned. With the help of the American people, we will expand Veterans Treatment Courts to every veteran in need and free veterans from addiction, mental illness, incarceration, homelessness, and unemployment.
Veterans fought for our freedom, now it’s our turn to fight for theirs.

Veterans recently returned from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues convene in Judge Wendy Lindley’s courtroom. These veterans are standing before the judge at parade rest; feet shoulder width apart with their hands behind their backs. Standing by their side is their Veteran Mentor, a fellow veteran who knows exactly what it is like to fight in combat. This is a unique courtroom, one of first in the nation to help justice-involved veterans struggling with the physical and mental scars of war.
