The American Psychiatric Association defines Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a psychiatric disorder that occurs in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event. Military veterans have been exposed to situations and events they may not have been prepared to cope with after those events. We aim to bridge that gap and help bring our Veterans more peace of mind when they've returned home. Through the Sgt BAM Foundation, we strive to raise funds in order to train and distribute Service Animals to those that need one. A study conducted at Purdue shows that Veterans with Service Dogs had significantly fewer symptoms of PTSD than those without a service animal. Having a Service Dog allows Veterans to sleep more, function with less anger, and have less anxiety on a day-to-day basis.
"The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here." -- Abraham Lincoln
