We were joined from NY by award-winning Producer/Director/Writer/Filmmaker, Josh Aronson, to discuss his latest documentary, To Be of Service, about veterans with PTSD who have found their Service Dog to be a mode of treatment that profoundly helps them return to a life of feeling and love.  This documentary will be released in NYC on November 1 at Cinema Village, in LA on November 8 at Laemmle Music Hall, will be screened in various cities throughout the nation after that, and will be shown on Netflix beginning in mid-November.  For more information about this movie, where and when you can see it, how to host a screening, as well as information about service dog organizations, check out the movie website:  www.tobeofservicefilm.com.
