Staff Sergeant Jason Davis was eventually referred to the Patriotic Service Dog Foundation (PSDF), based in Orange County, CA. This experience also gave him the opportunity to meet and begin working with 4 the Fallen. After many visits to meet and train with these amazing service dogs in California, Staff Sergeant Davis met and began his journey to wellness with his service dog named, Bravo. Bravo has helped him in many positive ways. Bravo is by-his-side on a daily basis and accompanies Jason virtually everywhere he goes. Bravo has helped him through his darkest of days. Bravo has helped Jason once again be comfortable in social situations, and most importantly, Bravo has been his guardian angel and literally saved his life.
