My nephew, a veteran of the Iraqi War, was granted a dog to assist with his PTSD. His dog has been a life saver. I can't thank this organization, and others like it, for the work they do to help our veterans as they return to life post war. I don't know how J. would survive without his wonderful companion, who has done more for him than medication and counseling. Miracles happen here.
