This Able Veteran

Founded in 2011, This Able Veteran is dedicated to helping veterans suffering from psychological and physical injuries as a result of their service. The program teaches trauma recovery skills, and provides a specially trained service dog as a working partner. Dogs are trained to respond to signs of anxiety and nightmares, and to intervene, prompting the veteran to use the trauma recovery skills he or she has learned.
