North Carolina is joining other states in establishing veterans treatment courts. The purpose of these courts is to divert veterans from the traditional criminal justice system and link them with programs, benefits, and services they have earned. On November 12, the first veterans treatment court in North Carolina celebrated its first anniversary by graduating six veterans in Harnett County. The next day Gov. McCrory was on hand to celebrate the opening of the second veterans treatment court in Cumberland County.
He wrapped up a series of events honoring Veterans during the week of November 10.
