On Thursday, June 26th, 2014, Honorable John Moore, the presiding Judge for the Bronx Veterans Treatment Court, along with Dwayne Gathers, the Mentor Coordinator for the Bronx Veterans Treatment Court, proudly conducted the graduation and coining ceremonies for veterans Anthony Alvarez, Luis Ramos and Timothy Mclilly. These veterans who experienced legal difficulties upon reentry to civilian life after serving their county, were given the opportunity to receive help and treatment for their problems.

After more than a year (and for some up to 24 months), they are being recognized for their commitment and determination to overcome the personal and legal difficulties they were challenged with. Congratulations to these veterans and to the many individuals that helped them in their journey. “They have earned a second chance, without the stigma and complications that a criminal record can cause.”
