Soldier’s Best Friend is an Arizona based non-profit that connects Veterans suffering from combat injuries, such as PTSD and TBI with therapeutic companion dogs.  The group will work with any Veteran that has been diagnosed with PTSD or TBI  living in Arizona, or who is willing to relocate as training is available for Veterans offered in Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Prescott and Sierra Vista. This training usually takes about six to nine months to complete.

However, around mile 30, events took a turn that would leave Detrick emotionally shaken.
