Former Texas governor Rick Perry helped a veteran ,who recently buried his military dog, get unconventional treatment for PTSD. You may remember the story of Sergeant First Class Matt Bessler - an Army veteran whose service dog was shot and killed by a bicyclist in Wyoming.
After hearing about the tragic death of the military dog known as Major Mike, former Texas governor Rick Perry continued following the story of the Army veteran. And from what he was reading and hearing, Bessler's story was taking a turn for the worse.
Bessler, a 20-year Army vet who served six tours in Iraq with the 10th Special Forces Group out of Fort Carson, Colorado, depended heavily on service dog Mike to deal with his combat-related injuries alone.
That's when Rick Perry decided to make some calls and reach out to others to get Bessler the help he needed. The former Texas governor raised money to pay for an unconventional PTSD treatment - a treatment that was making a big difference in the lives of other military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Below is the Fox News video sharing the story of former Texas Governor Rick Perry, military dog Major Mike and Army veteran Matt Bessler.
