In 2012, U.S. Army veteran Justin Lansford lost his leg in an IED explosion in Afghanistan.
Upon returning home to recover, Lansford was paired with Gabe, a then two-year-old Golden Retriever therapy dog who graduated from the Wounded Canine Connection – a nonprofit that pairs wounded warriors with support dogs, who help their brave best friends improve their symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder.
FacebookThis past weekend, Gabe had his paws full with an entirely new slew of responsibilities, serving as the best man in Lansford’s wedding to longtime girlfriend, Carol Balmes.
