1 Soldier 1 Dog 1 Team
As a Veteran and Former NYC Firefighter Tim Duffy knew all too well the effects of PTSD. After responding off duty to the 9-11 disaster and suffering from smoke and dust inhalation Tim was forced into early retirement. It was then that he found his true calling. He took his passion for Veterans and his passion for Dogs and brought them together in a unique way to help each other. Tim finds Dogs in shelters and trains them and to be a companion to a veteran suffering from PTSD who would like a dog. He says, "I spend as much time training the veteran as I do training the dog. I train them to be a team and it helps both of them".
