Veterans Helping Veterans

In recognition of clearing a $22,000 fundraising goal needed for pairing a Guardian Angels Medical Service Dog with a deserving local veteran, a group of Oakmont Rochester residents and their families were proud of the effort and ecstatic with the results.

“When it comes to the things veterans experience, you can’t go through it without it changing you,” said T.L., a member of the Merchant Marines during World War II. “So doing what you can to help, that will make a difference.”

Many Oakmont residents gathered to watch at Oakmont Rochester as veterans from American Legion Post 253 and American Legion District 18 each presented checks for $2,500 each, making the difference in the fundraising efforts.

Evangeline, who was sitting with a table of fellow Oakmont Rochester residents, was beaming at the end result of the service dog fundraising campaign.

“My husband was a veteran of World War II,” she said. “They were the real heroes. We support the whole world, but we have to take care of our veterans, too.”

The local American Legion groups grew more and more involved with this project.

Oakmont Manor resident shares ‘Ranger’ book with family

Ranger: A PTSD Service Dog” is a children’s book sharing the story of a Guardian Angels Medical Service Dog written from the dog’s perspective.

It caught the eye of Marianne, a resident at Oakmont Manor in Sterling Heights. In support of an ongoing drive to raise the funds to pair a Guardian Angels dog with a local veteran, she purchased a copy of the book.

Turns out, her great granddaughter enjoys the book, too.

“I have several friends who have varying degrees of post-traumatic stress disorder from their time in the service and I know how hard it is on them,” Marianne’s grandson Nick wrote. “Unfortunately, I had two friends from my class (at Virginia Military Institute) who committed suicide due to PTSD and it is very sad to know that this happened to them and that they didn’t get enough help, maybe a dog would have helped them.”

While it offers a compelling story about a serious issue, Nick’s daughter enjoyed it for other reasons, too.

“Mary Frances enjoyed the book when I read it to her,” he said. “She really likes to look at pictures and see the colors on the page.”
