Mil Resource Radio with Linda Kreter and co-host Tosombra Kimes presents:
“Vets and Pets” by Dava Guerin and Kevin Ferris –
Dava Guerin and Kevin Ferris have written a second book based on their close relationships with wounded warriors and the ways families recover. Following “Unbreakable Bonds: The Mighty Moms of Walter Reed” about the parent caregivers of wounded warrior adult children, Dava and Kevin realized that service and companion animals played a large part in the healing and recovery process of the wounded warriors they’d come to know. Thus Vets and Pets was born, with remarkable stories about veterans and their two and four-legged family members.
Leslie Nicole Smith is a retired Army captain who served in Bosnia in 2001. She shares her story of losing her leg and her eyesight — and the introduction of her beloved service dog, Isaac, whose intuitive nature makes Isaac an extension of herself. Leslie continues her service through public speaking, acting and advocacy — always while connected to Isaac.
