Service Dogs Save Lives

A 'battle buddy' service dog is so much more than just a service dog for a disabled veteran. Service Dogs not only increase the quality of their handler's lives on a daily basis, and allow them to decrease the intake of the harmful medications, but they are also a beacon of hope for so many others struggling with Post Traumatic Stress and invisible wounds.

In boot camp, the transition from civilian to warrior is a long and tough road.

Yet, when leaving the military the transition from warrior back to civilian is a much shorter process.

In the same way that there are many resources invested into the transformation of a civilian into a combat effective warrior, there must be an equal effort put into the successful transition of a warrior back...

The "Fog of War"
