Veterans Court honors first graduate

Floyd County hosts special court suited to service members



“It feels good,” she said of the support from so many people. “It feels good to know people are watching, even if you didn’t know they were watching.”

Jones said she intends to eventually transfer to the University of Louisville and eventually getting a job as a dental hygienist. Her studies will put on hold, however, as she has volunteered to return to Afghanistan this summer. She said through her experience in Veterans Court she feels more equipped to handle her second transition back to civilian life when she returns from her deployment

“Since I have gone and come home once already, I pretty much I know what to expect,” Jones said. “It won’t be easy, but I’ll know what to expect, and I know if I do have any problems, I know where to come to.”
