In honor of the American holiday, this blog post is dedicated to my neighbors to the South. What a more fitting topic than the Patriot Rovers, an organization that matches dogs with soldiers, named after fallen soldiers. Based in North Carolina, The Patriot Rovers provide canine therapy using rescued dogs to provide psychiatric services to military veterans suffering from PTSD and/or a traumatic brain injury. The program is free for veterans. You can read the whole writeup here.
The Patriot Rovers was initiated by David Cantara, a U.S. Army veteran, who is also a member of Patriots Guard Riders, a national group of motorcycle riders who serve as escorts at military funerals.
