Chris: “This is Bo. I served in Iraq in 2004 and I suffer from alcoholism and PTSD. I was on a two year waiting list to get Bo. He was training for 19 months to be a blind guide dog. He moved over to be a service dog at the very end. I just got back this week from going away with him to learn how to use him.
“Bo is a great dog. If he hears me starting to have a nightmare he wakes me up. He is so affectionate. All he wants to do is lick my face. I hope he helps. I have had too many friends take their lives from PTSD after the war. I have two beautiful little girls so I’m not doing that. But I have tried everything. He is my last resort.”
