The Department of Defense estimates that one in five post-9/11 veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. For these veterans, returning to civilian life is a challenge, but a trained service dog can make that process a little easier.
A spokesman for the Worcester County Sheriff's Office says the dog, named Ike, was hit by a car Saturday in the area of Race Track Road and Route 50 in Berlin. Ike had been with the department for three years.
