Where did you serve and what did you do?
Iraq 08-09. I was an MP that was assigned to an Infantry unit for deployment. I was stationed at several caps/FOBS where I was part of the QRF team and pulled security at main gates.
Tell us how your dog is helping you continue #StillServing in your community.
I am an Elks member at my local chapter where I volunteer my time with the Veterans program and the Army of Hope Program, where I was in charge of for a short time. My service dog allows me to be a part of my community by supporting me in crowded places, and helps keep me grounded so Im living in the present moment. He also helps with my anxiety in certain situations, again allowing me still be a productive in my community.
Why do you do it?
I still want to give back to my country even after my service. My service dog allows me the opportunity to do that.
