They can give their inefficient and uncaring administrators huge bonuses. But they can't come up with the dough to help guys and gals who fought for this country.

You would think some Animal therapy might be a lot cheaper than a life time of office visit therapy!

It's not about therapy for the veterans.

It's about GOVERNMENT JOBS FOR MINORITIES AND PARTY HACKS.

Vets don't matter. The sooner they die, the better...as far as these scheissekopfs are concerned.

There ain't enough jail cells for the people who've earned it, in the last eight years...

We have a very real...textbook definition...of a symbiosis with these animals. IMO...when we travel to the stars...they'll definitely be along for the ride.

Right now...Buddy...my Golden Retriever is sleeping at my feet...but he's made certain to put his paw on my foot before he started snoring. Marvellous creatures...marvellous. :smiley20:

Read an item this morning where the VA has a problem with Assist Animals in their facilities when the veteran is there overnight or longer. Their reasoning is that if the veteran cannot take care of the animal's needs, a staff member needs do. They don't want staff caring for animals. A bit of a conundrum.

Trained horses too can help with PTSD
Instead of sending horses..you know where when some people don't want them anymore for stupid reasons , they could train horses for rehabilitation
that is good for veterans and or police,cops as well.
Dogs are really good at it but horses too.
