You cannot find a better companionship than that of a trained and bond of a dog. I can tell you that no matter the injuries and/or Service Disabled Veteran disabilities the companionship of a trained canine is very rewarding and continues to provide the needs of our veterans. I am a 100% Disabled Vietnam Era Veteran and would cherish the expertise and love that would be shown by the trained service dog. My disabilities include Back, Feet and Depression the trained service dog would be very beneficial to me as I have a very hard time bending or stretching out to retrieve items that are out of my reach. Where as a service dog is trained to retrieve items that may have been dropped or out of my reach. Also the love and companionship of a service dog would help with my depression which is brought on by this debilitating disease of the mind. The passing of this bill would great assist our Nations Veterans that are in need of these disabilities. Thank you for the ability to voice my concern/support for this Bill.
