“I drank down a 24-pack of beer, pulled my hidden Remington 870 out of the attic, put down a tarp, grabbed a chair, put the barrel in my mouth, tears rushing down my face thinking about my wife and family and what I was about to do to them.”
This quote is an example of the daily struggle that our American Heroes face while battling invisible wounds of war. Every year, 8,000+ Veterans lose their lives to suicide. The battle with PTSD is a life sentence; however, there is hope.
Northwest Battle Buddies is dedicated to providing life-changing service dogs to our American Heroes free of charge. We have a 100% success rate. Our Veteran service dog teams are living healthier lives with greater freedom and independence after being matched with a NWBB service dog.
Joining Operation Never Quit is an opportunity to say “Thank You,” not only for our freedom, but for the sacrifice our Veterans continue to endure. Please join ONQ22 and stand with NWBB as we fight to make a difference in the lives of our American Heroes.
Also by joining ONQ22, you will be provided a window into the valleys and triumphs of Veterans surviving PTSD with a NWBB service dog at their side.
