Dogs for vets with PTSD

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs says almost 240,000 veterans have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, since 2001.  In most cases, the trauma comes with combat experience, but that's not always the case.

Good Day Atlanta's Ron Gant met a woman who has struggled with PTSD for years, but is now finding help through a four-legged friend.

    Sometimes less can be more! A small space shouldn't limit your garden or your imagination—hanging baskets, containers, window boxes, espaliered fruit trees….they're all great ways to made a big gardening impact – even on the most limited high rise balcony!

    Don't worry...that incredible aroma of smoke-cooked BBQ isn't just in your imagination. It's coming from Kennesaw, where the grills are fired up for an annual tradition.
