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.

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