G.I. Josie – Nonprofit for Female PTSD & MST

Marine is on a mission to provide service dogs for vets with PTSD

Former Marine Cpl. Cole Lyle served a 400-day deployment in Afghanistan, in a war now in its 16th year. Tasked to recover blown up vehicles outside the wire, he often faced the threat of secondary roadside bombs or ambushes. He also volunteered at a trauma hospital in Helmand province, where he witnessed horrific injuries of service members, and local women and children. Those images haunt him to this day.
