EVENT: Your Journey Your Cause 2017
My 2017 Ironman Race is dedicated to raising funds for a service dog for our friend /family member Jacob Duncan. Many of you know Jake lived with us for a while in The Woodlands and has been a long time friend of Douglas and Richmond. After a rodeo accident which took him out of competition, Jake joined the United States Navy. Here is his story:
I am a United States Navy Corpsman. I have served in support of Naval Special Operations, Marine Operations, and worked in the Clinical of a Naval Hospital Unit. I am being medically retired this year after sustaining injuries and being diagnosed with ptsd. The service dog is to be trained to give me stability entering public places and transitioning into a new civilian life to allow for a coping mechanism to prevent traumatic related triggers. I have been active duty 4 years.
