Final Salute Society Wall
The Final Salute Society ensures that no veteran is ever buried alone. Final Salute Society members stand a silent vigil at funerals for veterans who have no next of kin present to receive a final salute to honor their service to our nation.
Veterans Treatment Court
In 2013, the General Division of the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court initiated a special court to assist those veterans who are involved in criminal behavior and who also struggle with disorders due to their combat experience.
The Honorable Dennis J. Adkins founded Montgomery County’s first Veterans Treatment Court (VTC) and presided over its initial session on November 20, 2013. This new court is a voluntary program that includes regular court appearances before a designated VTC judge and a treatment plan specifically designed for each veteran. Treatment is provided through the combined efforts of the Montgomery County VTC Judge, the Probation Department, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and other community agencies.
Most veterans are familiar with the term “battle buddy,” a fellow service member who helps another, in and out of combat. Montgomery County Veterans Treatment Court is looking for “battle buddies” in the form of mentors for former service men and women who have become involved with the criminal justice system.
Any current or honorably discharged service member can become a mentor for Veterans Treatment Court. Contact the Montgomery County Veterans Service Commission at 937-225-4801 ext. 224.

NOTICE: E-Mail Scam
If you have received an e-mail from a non-VA email account asking to click a link to confirm your interest in a secure exchange of medical records, it is a scam.
This is to inform you of several reports that Veterans have received an email from a non-VA email account, requesting that they click a link to confirm their interest in a secure exchange of medical records. These emails are NOT being generated by VA or My HealtheVet. The message is designed to look like it came from My HealtheVet so that the Veteran will be tricked into clicking the link. VHA Security teams are aware of this issue and are working to inform Veterans and law enforcement about these events.
- Contact Naomi Cayson, My HealtheVet Coordinator at (937) 268-6511, Ext. 1114 or Naomi.firstname.lastname@example.org
- Inform the Veteran to NOT open the message, but NOT delete it until VA has a copy with the embedded links in the message
- If a Veteran or a family member reports that they clicked on the link of a “bogus” email, it is recommended they update and run their anti-virus, anti-Malware, anti-spyware program and change their passwords.
