Forward Assist Veterans in the USA (Part One)
During a week long trip that included the opportunity to go Hog and Deer hunting in the backwoods of Arkansas six Forward Assist veterans took the opportunity to visit a Veterans Treatment Court as guests of presiding Judge McGowan in Little Rock, Arkansas . The veterans learnt about the basic principles and practices of The Veterans Treatment Courts and were able to meet US graduates of the programme. Links between Forward Assist have now been established and veterans on 'both sides of the pond' are looking forward to hosting a reciprocal visit for the USA veterans in May 2014. Any organisation that would like to support Forward Assist in hosting the veterans when they come to the UK are asked to get in touch via this web site. Judge McGowan and her multi-disciplinary team are pictured in the Central Atrium within the Court building.
