A new non-profit in Schenectady County is pairing veterans with service dogs. Operation at Ease was created a year ago.
From the battlefield to the backyard, Matt Catlin and Casey Harris have been through a lot together.
“I am very lucky because I am getting to go through this program with my best friend from Iraq,” said Catlin.
Catlin and Harris served side by side overseas and returned together in 2007.
“I was kind of looking to get a dog,” said Harris.
“There was an existing program that was placing animals with veterans,” said Catlin.
