Naples, FL, March 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- ALTAIR Training Solutions, a military operations base located at the historical Copeland prison site, is sponsoring its inaugural “Bark-a-Que” to benefit Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, a nonprofit dedicated to pairing combat wounded veterans with PTSD service dogs, free of charge.
“Almost one active soldier or veteran per hour attempts suicide and a few die each day at their own hand. Psychotropic medications aren’t generally working as a therapy. We are hosting this event because we want to be part of the solution. I was paired last December with ‘Sarge’ and this service animal has changed my life,” explained Brian Jones, CEO of ALTAIR and retired Sgt. Major, U.S. Army. The ALTAIR “Bark-a-Que” will commence Saturday, March 30 from 11am-4pm and costs $60 per person, including a catered lunch, open shoot with range safety officers, 50/50 raffle, service dog “meet and greet,” silent auction, prizes and a chance to win a week long getaway at a luxurious mountain lodge.
