My dog Cache helps me every day since being diagnosed with depression, anxiety and PTSD. I served as the Navarro County Veterans Service Officer and was accredited with the Texas Veterans Commission, Vietnam Veterans of America and American Legion. Eight years or more I worked as county VSO. I have been a member of the Navarro County Memorial VFW Post 3366 in Corsicana, Texas since 1980’s. I have served in most all offices and I am currently on my 21st year as Post Quartermaster! Cache, my white Lab, has been with me his entire 61/2 year life! Could not function without him and his love!
Why do you do it?
My whole life has been about helping Veterans. I currently serve oh The Texas Veterans Parade Board in Navarro County to show support for all veterans!
