The Human Costs of War: Justin Miller's Story

Big Paws Canine is proud to be assisting Army Combat Veteran, Justin Miller, with the continued training of his Service Dog, 3 year old Bella. Miller just released his story detailing his experiences in Fallujah and Baghdad battling IEDs (improvised explosive devices) and al-Qaeda. He shares the details of what he witnessed in war, even exposing his own struggles with TBI and PTSD. Miller’s reason for writing his story is to expose the realities of war to the general public in hopes of having them understand the human costs of war.


Please help Big Paws Canine in reaching our goal of raising $10,000 for our next service dog! You can see some of our dogs that we have placed already!
