    Please let me know if this is in the wrong thread,

    I represent Northwest Battle Buddies (NWBB).
    We are a 501(c) 3 non profit organization that provides service dogs for Veterans suffering with PTSD.

    I am a wounded, combat veteran and I was fortunate enough to receive a dog from Northwest Battle Buddies in February of this year. I was wounded in combat in Afghanistan in 2010 and I have been dealing with PTSD for 8 years. Having my service dog Herra has changed my life. She gives me the security and sense of purpose that I have been missing since I got out of the Army. I am fortunate enough to be able to work for NWBB and help other Veterans diagnosed with PTSD.

    We are based out of Battle Ground, WA. We are seeking charitable donations as well as applications from Veterans diagnosed with PTSD that would like a Service dog. Please visit www.northwestbattlebuddies.org for more information. you can PM me as well and I can answer any questions you may have.
    you can visit our FB page and website for more information. We are active in the local community and always looking for new opportunities to raise awareness for our Veterans. 27067533_1302733196497446_1957291226385539239_n.jpg

    Good work for a good cause, helping veterans and canines. I can't think of a more noble endeavour.

    Thanks for your support!

    She has really made my life so much better.
    Tell your friends and family that are veterans with PTSD to contact us if they think that a service dog could help them.

    I have a relative With a serious case of PTSD . When he gets back in the northwest I'm going to give him your contact info. It doesn't appear he has been getting any help or Mabey hasn't meet up with anyone he would accept help from. Thanks for your service.

    Real help is very difficult to get, especially from the VA.
    I have benefited the most from non profit organizations led by people that actually care about our Veterans. He can talk to me now and I can see if we are able to help him.

    Thanks he's out of state right now. It looks like he has problems relating to most of the civilian population after being in
    Iraq
