Airing on Wednesday, June 3, 2015: First up, with the prime minister of Greece is on his way to Brussels today, we'll talk about attempts to persuade lenders to unlock more emergency money to try and keep the country solvent. Next, we hear frequently that many veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan suffer from mental illness. And many end up getting arrested for crimes such as domestic violence and assault. Since 2001, nearly 200 specialized courts have been developed around the country, designed to help veterans navigate the criminal justice system and taking into account their particular needs, such as traumatic brain injury and PTSD. We look at how these courts help veterans while saving jurisdictions the costs of incarcerating them.
