Marine graduates from Monroe County Veterans Court

MC Veterans Court Judge Dwaine B. Thomas opened his courtroom for the graduation of 31 year old Marine Eric Ryan Busch for the successful completion of Veterans Court program. The event was delayed an hour due to a lengthy case prior to the graduation so many of the County officials had to leave prior to the graduation. County Mayor Mitch Ingram, city council and sheriff department members were present but had to leave for prior engagements.

Fortunately all of the Vet to Vet Tennessee members including Eric’s mentor Randall Scott were present. Eric thanked Judge Thomas, the Veterans Court, Helen Ross McNabb Military Services Center Clinical Therapist Lisa Wilkerson, Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program Case Manager Susannah Wilson and Vet to Vet Tennessee for restoring and saving his life.
