CORVUS BRINGING HELP AND HOPE TO WOUNDED WARRIOR
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CENTREVILLE, VA, September 21 2016
The Corvus Group knows that sometimes hope comes in on four paws. The company, founded by a combat-disabled Army veteran, is proud to be partnering with Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs to sponsor a very special dog, named “Harry,” for a Wounded Warrior.
“Harry” was named to honor a hero and trained to help a hero.
Two years ago, MG Harry Greene was killed in Afghanistan – the first General Officer killed in combat since Vietnam. Just about that time, a new puppy was entering into the Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs training program in Williston, Florida. Friends of MG Greene arranged for this puppy to be named “Harry” in honor of MG Greene.
“Harry,” who is about to enter service, has been specially trained to care for a Soldier with PTSD. When Colonel (Retired) Laurie Buckhout, president and CEO of The Corvus Group, heard that a sponsor was needed to cover the cost of “Harry’s” training, she jumped in.
“MG Harry Greene was a very dear friend,” said Buckhout. “He was a personal mentor and an amazing leader who cared very deeply about the health and well-being of Soldiers. I can’t think of a better tribute than to sponsor this dog to help a Wounded Warrior.”
“I’ve studied the work of Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs and their results are extraordinary,” Buckhout said. “The national suicide rate among Veterans is a staggering 20 lives lost per day; that rate drops to zero for Veterans receiving the hope and healing provided by these dogs – who wouldn’t be moved by that?”
Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc. is a nationally recognized non-profit organization that specializes in training and pairing service dogs. Guardian Angels has donated more than 170 service dogs with deserving veterans and others in need. Guardian Angels trains for a variety of conditions, from mitigation of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Traumatic Brain Injury symptoms, to seizure or insulin alerting, to mobility issues, hearing assistance and more. Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs is funded entirely by donation and private grant support.
