Former West Wing cast members gathered in Austin at the ATX TV Festival on June 11 to mark the 10-year anniversary of the show’s finale, but discussing efforts to help veterans returning from war was the real message.
The reunited cast, which included Bradley Whitford, Janel Moloney, Richard Schiff, Joshua Malina and Dule Hill, called for the establishment of Veteran Treatment Courts, where substance abuse or mental health treatment is offered as an alternative to incarceration.
Cast member Melissa Fitzgerald, who played C.J. Cregg’s assistant Carol, is now the senior director of Justice for Vets, which leads the national effort to establish Veterans Treatment Courts within reach of every veteran in need.
