Marine leaves none behind, not even dogs

Knowing that over 3,000 dogs are euthanized each day in the United States, and over 20 military veterans each day commit suicide, a former Marine who almost took his own life while suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome started an organization called One Warrior Won. It rescues well-vetted dogs from high kill shelters and trains them to be PTSd Service Dogs.

The Veterans Administration does not yet recognize the value of PTSd Service Dogs, but no veteran who has received a dog has attempted suicide. The dogs understand how vets feel and comfort or protect them as needed. To learn more about One Warrior One, please watch this brief informative video.
