James is an ex-Marine who survived 3 tours of duty: 2 in Iraq and 1 in Afghanistan. Because he was wounded by an IEU land mine, he now has the help of his service dog, Abel, who gets things off the ground for James because of his injured back. James volunteers with Canines for Service and attends functions like this Southeastern Wildlife Expositiion we visited in Charleston, SC yesterday in Marion Square. An honor to meet both of them. We also met several other dogs who were there, all who had biblical names inspired by Phillippians 2:3-4.
