This short captures the terror of flashbacks to the battlefield, and the comfort and relief a veteran can get from a PTSD guide dog. Around 20% of veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan have been diagnosed with PTSD and 22 of these commit suicide daily, compelling evidence that wars can go on producing casualties long after they are over. In addition to its intended goal of spreading awareness of PTSD guide dogs, this video is valuable as a sort of teaser trailer to stimulate interest in learning more about resources available for soldiers suffering from PTSD.
Take time out today to consider the PTSD epidemic for veterans. Find your local PSTD guide dog program at the International Guide Dog Federation.
