I heard of a new program that the local Veterans Service Officer is becoming involved with. Dogs for Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The dog is obedience trained, and afterwards goes through a short amount of specialized training. The dog blocks people from approaching a Veteran from the back. The dog will lay right on top of the Veterans feet if the Veteran is getting nervous and stressed out.
Those of us with pets, either dogs or cats know how great they are as stress relievers.
Far Guy asked me to take photographs of all these military patches last weekend on one of the Eagle Staffs at the Pow Wow.
Do you see the PTSD patch? It says P.T.S.D. ALL WOUNDS ARE NOT VISIBLE.
I see no end to our Military involvement in other countries. It seems to me that we police the world. It is not fair that our best and brightest young men and women go to war. Send in some of those fancy talking politicians from Washington DC for awhile:)
