The recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq are peppered with unconventional tactics and improvised explosive devices. Caught in the crossfire, many heroic servicemen and women are now home to heal, and many have lost their vision in the fray. The Paws for Patriots Guide Dogs program pairs impeccably trained Guide Dogs with visually impaired vets, restoring dignity and an independent lifestyle. Veterans benefit from 26 days of residential training, gaining confidence and navigating the world with the borrowed eyes of a faithful new friend.
