Service Dog for Veteran

I am a former Green Side Hospital Corpsman (combat medic for the Marines).

I was stationed with 1/24 marines, and did a tour in Iraq in 2009 as an Individual Augmentee with 3/24 Marines.  After four years of service, I became a licensed EMT and was working on getting my Firefighting Certifications when I was diagnosed with B-Cell Leukemia.  My leukemia was found to be service connected and I was also diagnosed with PTSD.

I am now fully disabled and living in Spring Lake, MI with my wife.  We have four children.  I’m currently focusing on my mental health to better myself as a person, Father and Husband.  I’m in weekly therapy with the VA and still battling health issues left over from the Leukemia.

I am humbly asking for donations to assist in the payment for a Service K9 (Pictured K9 Jaeger).  Funds will go solely to the purchase of K9 Jaeger and his training program as well as 1 year of private training for him and myself as a team.  Services will be provided by Cumberland Command K9 in Muskegon Michigan.  As an 11 year military K9 veteran he is an experienced K9 trainer and handler. 
Website ( My self and my family thank you for sharing and anything you can and are willing to donate.  Thank you.36434518_1548170496436366_r.jpeg36434518_1548170509675354_r.jpeg36434518_1548170527735385_r.jpeg36434518_1548170537677340_r.jpeg
