Heal! Veterans and Their Service Dogs

“I was having some issues accepting my disabilities, feeling like I went from an alpha male to a two year old needing all this help and beating myself up about it. ‘What’s my purpose in life? What am I ever gonna be able to accomplish now that I can’t see.’

“Without Valor I don’t think that I’d feel confident enough to pursue the things I have. Now I’m competent in my abilities again. Before I felt crippled and handicapped and broken. Valor is like my Cadillac. He weaves right in, we go where we need to go. We get there and we look badass doin’ it. He never ever worries about taking me anywhere, he’s totally confident. He’s the best battle buddy you could ever ask for.”
