From war to wisdom.
USMC Veteran Kenny Bass (1/4) was wounded by an IED during a counter-ambush patrol in Iraq, and has [Survivor Syndrome], hearing loss, Behcet’s Disease, and multiple other physical injuries.
After battling with the fallout from his combat experience for years, he was prescribed a service dog. The VA would not cover the costs, so he raised the funds himself. Atlas the Wonderdog, trained to help mitigate the symptoms of PTSD, TBI and hypervigilance, transformed Kenny’s life. Kenny, along with fellow Marine Joshua Rivers, and online expert Jon Campbell, decided to found an organization that would place trained, certified service dogs with veterans, at no cost.
The Battle Buddy Foundation has become Kenny’s new mission, his way of continuing to serve his fellow veterans, and help ensure that generations of veterans and their families will benefit from his experience. This short clip gives a glimpse of Kenny’s journey, From War To Wisdom.
