“They Gave Me The Dog To Protect Me And We Survived.”The Veterans Site
Richard Steinberg was a Sentry Dog Handler in Vietnam and suffers from PTSD and diabetes. When service dogs were first gaining attention for being helpful with PTSD, Steinberg got a support dog of his own. Steinberg has nightmares and changes in blood sugar that Kira, his current dog, can sense (you can see service dogs help with PTSD here). Kira gets to continue the legacy of dogs helping the military and we salute her for that!
Hear from Steinberg himself about his truly wonderful experiences with dogs in the military.
