(Le Mars) — Jason Carroll is an Army veteran from Remsen that suffers from the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, as well as from depression, and anxiety issues. However, Carroll has help to relieve those conditions. His help is in the form of a black Labrador dog with the name of Delta. Carroll obtained his dog through the non-profit organization called “Partners for Patriots.”
Carroll, and his dog Delta, will be at the T-C-C Verizon store today (Friday) located at the intersection of Business Highway 75 and Highway 3 to inform people about the program Partners for Patriots.
Carroll says he has had Delta for seven months, and his dog is always at his side. He explains how his dog helps relieve him from having any anxiety and PTSD symptoms.
The disabled veteran says the dogs used for Partners for Patriots are based in northwest Iowa.
Carroll says suicide is all too common for veterans, and he hopes to be able to call more attention to veterans with mental health issues through his efforts of the Partners for Patriots.
The Army veteran and his dog are at the T-C-C Verizon store today for a hog dog feed fund raiser.
