The Veterans need all the help they can get. This should be for every Veteran across this Nation.

The veterans court is a great program that was started in Buffalo NY by Judge Robert Russell in 2008. The Buffalo team, along with Justice for Vets, has trained 95 courts across the country (including Houston). I wish 60 minutes would have recognized the Buffalo team and Justice for Vets for their continuing role in this nationwide success story.
