Many volunteers will be veterans themselves, participating in Thurston County’s Veterans Court, a program that began in 2009.
The program is available to veterans and active duty service members who have committed nonviolent crimes associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, brain injury, or another type of mental illness related to military service. Veterans who successfully complete the program have their current charges dismissed or get a reduced sentence.
