SHERMAN, TX -- At Thursday night's meeting, The Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 973 presented our news team with a certificate of appreciation. The certificate is from the Vietnam Veterans of America Texas State Council and recognizes us for supporting our local veterans.
Also at the meeting, the group heard the inspirational story of Captain Reginald Smith. Smith says after battling PTSD and legal issues he nearly took his life, but he says the veterans court system saved him.
"While in the program I learned so many skills and so many tools that enabled me to not only get through the legal issues of the Veterans Court, but to also get back into the VA health care system," Capt. Smith said.
Local veterans say officials are planning to start a Veterans Court in Grayson County in the future.
