I have read alot of these comments. OMG if the government misses out on this one, shame on them. We need to finally grow some backbone and stand behind our men and women. We (our government) has put our men and women in this position WE NEED TO HELP THEM, period.

I also suffer from PTSD, Anxiety and depression and my dog comes and lays by me when I am stressed. When I start to have a panic attack I hold onto her and it gets better so much more quickly then meds. They can help.

There had always been a special bond which existed between man and dog and many instances where a dog would willfully give up his or her life for his or her master. Suffering from PTSD myself it is not always possible to word what is wrong and it is good just to know you have a friend which will come and sit next to you and share that bad moment without asking questions or that look in the eye which says: "I am here don't worry." It sure makes a black day lighter and a rainy day brighter! So...

They were willing to give it all and came back with memories freezing joy and the will to live!

I have PTSD, and I was not in the military or combat. I would think that would give everyone PTSD. These Middle Eastern wars are producing the worst psychological problems and the most suicides of ANY US war. The
VA MUST help these Vets any way possible, and I know pets HELP...along with other help. Money should go there and not to the Military Industrial complex for weapons to kill Middle Easterners, for NO REASON.

our four legged companions are our best, they respect us, love us and are grateful, therefore he must do something for them out of pity, thank you greetings and Gaby.

If you really think about it. It is cheaper than having a therapist 24/7. And it is someone who loves you unconditionally.

I absolutely know for a fact that animals (dogs, cats, etc...) have wonderful healing powers, from just being who they are. God gave us so many wonderful things that are good for us, plants, herbs, spices, and the special love of some animals. I myself was very distressed the other day, when I had to go visit my friend with a sweet mini chihuahua. I told him I need my medicine. It worked. I held her, she kissed me, I calmed down and felt better. Let's all be smart and recognize the good that comes from LOVE, animal or human..... it's all good.
