    Read the CNN article below about how the Operation Freedom Paws program is training PTSD veterans and dogs to become a team with the dog as a service animal to help that veteran. To get the the veteran directly involved in the training of the dog gives the vet "a mission and a purpose." The story of the vet before he had his service dog speaks loudly that this program works.
