Welcome to our second issue of American Service Dogs Magazine. We had a lot of feedback from our first issue and are grateful to all who took the time to contact us! Again, our mission is to educate and inspire readers with accurate and useful information by telling real stories for the military community. Some of these stories you may have heard, and others you may have not.
In this issue, you will read about a Gold Star Wife who is working to preserve the legacy of her husband while assisting veterans and families and bringing awareness to PTSD. You will also read about Marine Adam Driver’s Arts in the Armed Forces and how he strives to bring high quality theatre programming to military families across the country. For our Veteran Owned feature, we are changing it up a bit and giving you insight on the military spouse owned business R. Riveter.
One of Semper K9’s service dog allies K9 Partners for Patriots shares their K9 Massage Therapy Class with us in Health & Wellness, giving us the reasons all dogs need a good massage! Our destinations feature this issue is USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, Alabama. Not only the home place of the USS Alabama, the park offers plenty of activities for all. Our American Grit feature is former Vietnam POW Paul E. Galanti, CDR. Find out how he survived one of the worst POW camps and experiences and his continued selfless service to the military community.
We hope you enjoy our second issue and welcome your feedback. Don’t forget to check out our events calendar and submit your military friendly events on our website.
