With how much our service members give to this country, it is always incredible to see them honored for their hard work and dedication.
At a recent Dallas Stars game, the National Hockey League team honored a wounded veteran by putting on a show.
On Veterans Appreciation Night, they did not hold back in making the night memorable. They chose to honor Cary Flatt, a veteran that received a gunshot wound to the head while serving in Afghanistan. Since then, he has faced issues with anxiety.
To help him, they provided him with a service dog. But not just any service dog! A service dog that can repel from the ceiling with a Navy SEAL buddy.
SEAL Ryan Parrott repelled down before the game to present Cary with his new service dog.
Many wonderful organizations came together to make this big moment happen. Rebuilding Warriors, a nonprofit organization, has a mission to provide service K-9s to honorably discharged veterans. The Birds Eye View Project is an organization that works to introduce America to service members overcoming adversity.
If you love service dogs, then you’ll love to see this former bomb-sniffing dog get the special treatment on the blue carpet at an NHL game. 22 Kill, a veterans’ suicide prevention organization, also was there to represent their cause.
