PTSD is real. Traumatic events affect an estimated 70 percent of adults in the United States. Up to 20 percent of these people go on to develop posttraumatic stress disorder. The incidence of PTSD in military personnel is even higher. At least 20% of military who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan suffer from PSTD. And depression is so deep it sometimes leads to suicide.
That’s where this veteran found himself when he returned from the war. He was so depressed he thought of ending his life. Then he met Captain. And according to the letter he wrote to his canine savior, his life changed.
