American Legion provides service dog

(From left) Joe Merimee, the chairman of the PTSD K-9 committee, is pictured with Army veteran Greg Bullock, dog Sheeba and trainer Clay Elya. Merimee is with American Legion Post 68, which has a program that pairs service dogs, such as the one trained by Elya, with veterans dealing with PTSD. Sheeba is the seventh dog the program has been able to pair with a veteran. Any veteran dealing with PTSD is encouraged to contact Post 68 to begin the process to be paired with a service dog.
