The state’s first criminal court system for veterans was launched Thursday at the 9th Circuit Court in Nashua, designed as a pilot program that may eventually serve as a model for other courts in New Hampshire.
The program will also provide a means to “turn troubles into triumphs,” said Chief Justice Linda Dalianis of the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
Dan Bricker, peer support specialist with the Manchester VA Medical Center, echoed those comments.
