Soldiers who attempt suicide often have no history of mental health issues

Reuters, September 5, 2018

More than one-third of U.S. Army soldiers
who attempt suicide don’t have a history of
mental health problems, a recent study suggests.
SO THE BIG QUESTION IS:
Why treat PTSD as a mental health/mental illness,
and not as an Occupational Hazard????
MIADS !!!! hmmm!!!!

*********************************************************************************************************

Donate $2,500 – And Two Veterans  & their Battle Buddies

 **Fake News …….. FAKE SERVICE DOGS !!**

I, for one,  am tired of all  the rhetoric in these articles pointing fingers
at the “FAKE” Service Dog when they should be pointing out
FAKE SERVICE DOG HANDLER!!!!
OR
FRAUDULENT DISABLED PERSON!!!!

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became Federal Law of
the Land to protect the Right of Access for Disabled Americans, and
not for businesses making money on the backs of the Disabled.

A real Service Dog Handler is a disabled person who requires the use of a
Service Dog to improve their Quality of Life, and makes sure their Dog is properly
trained and well-behaved in public. All they want is RESPECT when they enter a
facility or business to shop or take care of their personal business.

REMEMBER – When you point your finger at a person –
There are THREE of them pointing back at You!!!!!

 The level of Sarcasm depends upon

other person’s level of Stupidity!!!!

September 22nd 2018
A Monthly Tradition since 2013
Day of Remembrance for Our Veterans who are no longer with us!

And to check on those who might be in a “BADD” place!!!

Since July 2010, TADSAW has accredited 926 Service Dog Teams, including 110 Vietnam Veteran and ONE Korean War Veteran and 45 TADSAF (“Train a Dog – Save a Family” member program) Service Dog Teams.

Male :        681

Female:    245

In 2018, TADSAW has accredited 125 Service Dog Teams, (M:81/F:44) including 14 Vietnam Veteran (M:13//F:1) and 6 TADSAF Service Dog Teams!!!!

And remember those other Service Dog Organizations train one dog for $25,000 to $45,000 – just for one Veteran!!!!!  And TADSAW is still training one  Medical Alert Service Dog Team for $2,500. 

TADSAW DOG TRAINERS

big-give-sa-photoYou, as trainers, obviously see the way our rescue dogs change, and in many cases, save lives.  As Program Director and Founder of TADSAW I am asking you to become further involved by supporting TADSAW, as the need for funding is greater now than ever before.

I invite you to please immediately post the following link to your ‘Facebook’ pages and websites so that your friends and families can make a contribution to TADSAW, INC.  This is a huge opportunity to have nationwide donor participation following TADSAW in your own backyards.

Although every Service Dog Organization is responsible for the actions of the Service Dogs evaluated, trained and accredited, it is still the after training handling by the Dog’s handler, in this case the Veteran, to maintain TADSAW’s philosophy “If you set your dog up to fail, the Dog will fail” and consequently so will the Veteran.

A Service Dog may be accredited by successfully completing the Public Access Temperament Test, but in reality the dog only goes from the status of an “in-training service dog” to a “Service Dog In-Training” for the remainder of their career. And the handler must be aware of this at all times. Having a Service Dog is a 24/7/365 commitment for Life!!!

 

It is still TADSAW’s commitment to using only positive reinforced training methodology in the building of the canine-human bond, so necessary in any type of working dog relationship. ‘TOGETHER YOU TRAIN TO HONE YOUR SKILLS AND BOND AS A TEAM”!!
