To all my friends, this is a heartfelt appeal to all of you! I don't care what your Political affiliation is, nor your Ethnic background, Faith or Race… This is something that needs to be addressed! So many of our Service Men & Women come home from various theaters of War in a physical sense, but mentally they remain on the Battlefield, imprisoned by their own thoughts. Roughly on average, 22 Veterans choose to commit suicide every single day rather than live with the effects of their invisible battle scars…
A Specially Trained Service Dog can provide to our Hero's a great sense of Security and offers a calming effect to each of these Veterans and allows them to get the Physical exercise, that can make a huge positive difference in the lives of those Veterans who Suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD Service Dogs can:
*Help with episodes of depression
*Assistance in coping with emotional overload
*Help adjust serotonin levels
*Help lower blood pressure
*Calm the Veteran
*Prevent people overcrowding or rushing the Veteran
These Specially Trained Service Dogs are expensive, each roughly $15,000 USD! However, if we can all get together, especially my friends who follow me, I know we can help offset the costs! Can you help?
I work closely with only a few charities, but this one has my heart! I never served a day in my life, BUT if I can help make a difference to a Veteran who put his/her life on the line, I will do whatever I can!

Thank you all so much...
