I have the greatest pleasure of being paired with a Seeing Eye Dog named “Jack”. We have traversed the United States on airplanes, trains and cars to visit family for special occasions.

When I left the Army, it felt like I was leaving behind a part of myself. It’s a feeling that many Veterans experience as they transition from military to civilian life.

Everyone has heard the old adage “dog is man’s best friend.”
Personally, I’m conflicted about that. I love dogs and I like cats—but since I’m allergic, I don’t have to deal with feline smugness. However, my dog, Lady, is part of the family now and she’s been a faithful companion (sounds like Tonto, doesn’t it?)
