Fighting for freedom: Service dogs help survivors overcome limitations
Stephanie Shipwash, a graduate assistant at the University of Central Missouri, is calmed after her service dog, Gabbie, senses her anxiety in Warrensburg, Mo., April 20, 2017. In addition to providing emotional support, Gabbie has been trained on 25 commands to help Shipwash on a day-to-day basis. Three of the commands are catered towards lessening the effects of her post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Jazmin Smith)
