Wounded Warrior Project
September 20, 2013

As role it should have a selection that says "Client NOT Served." I contacted this organization for legal, financial, and educational assistance and received an invite for a fishing trip. As a disabled vet, I don't need a hunting, fishing or boating adventure. I needed assistance so that my home wasn't foreclosed on, my cars weren't repossessed, and an education to get a job, and legal assistance so that my rights would not have been taken away because of a mistake that never would have occurred had it not been for my disability. This program is a SELF LICKING ICECREAM CONE, no satisfaction.

K9s For Warriors
September 20, 2013

Shari Duval, founder and President has made this program into a family for Veterans who live with PTSD and TBI. The program has a 3 primary pillars of support; (1) New life is given to shelter dogs, 95% of the service dogs trained are rescued from shelters, giving a second chance at life for the dog and his/her warrior. (2) Service Dogs, each veteran is given a fully trained service dog at no cost as well as a 3 week stay in a home, all meals provided, again at no cost. (3) K9s Apprentice Trainer Program, graduates can learn to be trainers and come back and work at K9s for Warriors, this portion of the program has given purpose back to my life since after my medical retirement I not only lost a job as a Marine, but my identity. Cooper is my 2yr old yellow lab. We have been through so much together and he has stood by my side without fail. Before Coop I hid in my workshop or sat on my couch watching Netflix too afraid to go outside because of my PTSD. Coop and I have been a team for a year now and so far we hiked 900 miles of the Appalachian Trail, traveled to and from Florida twice, been on TV, and are now planning a through hike for other graduates of the program to help reintegrate them as well. Without Shari (Mom as she is referred toby her Warriors) and K9s for Warriors I would not be here today, they have given me my pride, peace, and confidence back and most of all they saved my life and I am forever in their debt. Thank you K9s. Thanks Mom!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Grow this program so that each veteran who chooses to have a service dog will never have to wait.
