DAWG Dogs Assisting Wounded GIsSome things in this world are incredibly complicated. Others are simple. Take military veterans and mental health. We don’t always know when a veteran is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Some seek out help from the V.A. (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs) only to experience delays. Some struggle so much they end up homeless. Others commit suicide. Veterans suffering from PTSD can often benefit from a service dog.

We learn more about the event and the organization from Jeremy Mahon, co-founder of the DAWG Foundation, and Robert L. Mungle, founder of Whiskey Brothers, a collective of local comedians.
