Program Graduates First Service Dog

Dan Bross

The Fairbanks branch of Paws for Purple Hearts is graduating its first veteran’s service dog. The national non-profit provides service dogs for disabled veterans, and involves them in dog training, as a form of therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder. KUAC’s Dan Bross reports.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
