message 1: by Mary (new)

Mary This book is one that tells the true story of a soldier, a dog, a journey, and the healing they gave to one another. It also gives us hope that people with disabilities seen or unseen will find acceptance, understanding, and compassion in dealing with a world that can be cruel and misunderstanding on a daily basis. A story of trust between man and dog and how they saved each other. It also gives us a glimpse into the very real world of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the positive impact service dogs can make in the lives of those who live with mental and physical trauma everyday. Until Tuesday  A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him by Luis Carlos Montalván
