Veterans Administration Attend Kent County Veterans Court
|Veterans Court Team & V.A. Visitors
Meet in Pre-Court Discussion
Prior to Veterans Court Session & Graduation
On December 2, 2011 Kent County Resident Judge William L. Witham Jr. hosted a delegation of Veterans Administration officers and specialists to view the Kent County Veterans Court in action. The delegation represented many states including Massachusetts, Virginia, Mississippi, and Texas.
Although there are Veterans Courts in other states, Delaware is the first statewide program and the first to combine both diversion and probation into the one program.
During the day, the group attended a pre-court multi-agency team session, a Veterans Court session, and a Veterans Court graduation.
The graduates receive a memento from Judge Witham and the program to honor and remind them of their achievement in successfully completing the demanding Veterans Court Program.
Among the attendees was Ralph Zaccheo, Administrative Officer, Lowell, MA; Samantha Loving, Psychiatry, Richmond, VA; Sharon Crowder, National CWT Specialist, Dallas, TX; Donna Tasker, National CWT Specialist, Biloxi, MS; Charles Quesenberry, Public Affairs Officer, Wilmington, DE; Mike Merrill, Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist, Wilmington, DE; and David Honaker, Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist, Wilmington, DE.
