Veteran with PTSD reveals how ‘Captain’ rescued him from suicide.

As a combat medic in Baghdad, Randy was confronted with the horrors of war on a regular basis. Death, violence, bombs, chaos — that was his everyday life during the war.

So it’s no surprise that he developed PTSD when he returned to the U.S. He became agoraphobic and didn’t want to leave his home. He felt alienated from friends and family and thought of suicide often.

In the quest to find some peace and solace, he signed up for a service dog program and was paired with a dog named Captain. It’s no understatement that Captain saved his life and gave him a reason to live.

Listen to Randy’s moving tribute to Captain, and be amazed at how strong the bonds between dog and man can really go…
