(KCEN) -- And this Veterans Day three wounded military members will have new best friends to help improve their lives.
Thanks to the Patriot Paws Organization wounded Vets are being paired up with service dogs that can make everyday living a little bit easier.
The pups spend up to two years in very intense training but they also help with deeper scars, like PTSD.
Like Afghanistan Veteran George Oldman who still has night terrors from the war.
"Probably forever I've lost a piece of me that I'll never get back, but with her help and my spouse's help, I'm learning to cope with it and make each day a little easier to deal with," says Oldman.
The organization has paired 50 dogs with Veterans since the program started six years ago.
Even better all three of the dogs that were given away this Veterans Weekend were rescue dogs.
