According to the Department of Public Health, over 33% of non-deployed veterans will commit suicide within three years after leaving service.
Doctors and other caring humans aren’t the only ones working to help our soldiers recover. Service dogs, like Captain from the video above, are devoted to helping their humans cope with the physical and mental wounds of war. Nothing captures the impact service dogs have on veterans like the stunning letter this combat medic wrote to the dog who changed his life.
If you would like to help place more service dogs with veterans who need them, consider donating to K9s for Warriors.
