SteelCloud em“barks” on a Mission with Veterans Moving Forward Partnership
In partnership with Veterans Moving Forward, SteelCloud is giving a new “leash” on life to veterans in need.
VMF trains and provides service dogs to veterans free of charge. Just because a body is healed doesn’t mean the soldier is healed. Each year, 8,000 veterans take their own lives—that’s approximately 22 each day. Between 2000 and 2018, 283,947 veterans suffered traumatic brain injuries. The statistics are heartbreaking. VMF’s service dogs ease the lives of veterans by monitoring medical conditions, fetching medications, reducing anxiety, as well as helping them overcome physical challenges like mobility and balance.
Training begins when a pup is just eight weeks old and is tailored to specific needs. The dog is ready for service at 18 months to two years of age. SteelCloud is sponsoring the two-year training of a service dog, from naming to deployment.
