This important and inspiring book celebrates the unique and special bond between wounded warriors, especially those suffering from PTSD, and their service dogs. Reporting for Duty discusses the vital work of therapy dogs who visit VA hospitals and military rehabilitation facilities. Included here are: *True stories of physically and mentally disabled veterans who count on service dogs for assistance with daily tasks *An explanation of PTSD and how it affects military veterans *How therapy dogs and service dogs are selected and trained for their jobs *How shelter dogs are rescued to train for therapy and service work *How the military is training dogs to accompany soldiers on deployments *A look at the bond between people and dogs and the positive effects it has on both *And much more! Hundreds of thousands of military veterans seek treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) each year. Service dogs have been used for many years in the civilian sector to help their disabled owners perform necessary tasks in daily life; likewise, the organized use of therapy dogs to bring comfort and companionship to hospital and nursing home patients dates back more than four decades. Author Tracy Libby tells the true stories of disabled veterans
