K9s For Warriors

I'm a sucker for animal videos so when Chandra Johnson-Greene, PR/Marketing Manager of
www.HooplaHa.com contacted me, I had to share it!!!

Chandra shares, "In this video, you'll learn about K9s For Warriors, which is dedicated to providing service dogs to warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of their military service (post 9/11). Their goal is to give a new “leash” on life to both rescue dogs and to military vets who were injured – helping them live with independence and dignity. You'll meet two heroes who have graduated from the program and their dogs to find out what life was like before and how the program has made a difference in their lives."

{Love Session} Andrea & Joel

Rachel Smith Photography is back and she has A LOT of great military sessions to share on A Military Story, so be prepared for some great photos & love stories <3 To see more of her work click here:Rachel Smith on A Military Story

Andrea has shared a little about their story, "Joel and I met at our super small Christian high school. Considering he grew up in South Africa, it's a wonder he ever ended up in my small city, in my school of 15 high schoolers. We started dating in early 2011, and he left for boot camp September 2011. We dated for a year and a half before we got married, just two months after I turned 18. I waited to move until I was finished with the college semester I was enrolled in, and I joined him at Camp Lejeune a few months after we were married. A month after I moved, he left for deployment training and deployed shortly after. He was gone for 9 months total. After he returned we needed some new pictures taken, so we had these pictures done with the ever talented Rachel Smith. She did an awesome job, and I now have these beautiful memories throughout my whole house. Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite."
