Film Premier: A New Leash On Life

Time and Place

Wilson Center, 6th Floor Auditorium

Event Details

The Women in Public Service Project and the American Society of Military Comptrollers in association with 62Media Works invite you to the Washington, D.C. premier of the documentary A New Leash On Life: The K9s for Warriors Story. 

Shari Duval was desperate for a solution to help her son Brett when he returned from serving in Iraq, suffering from PTSD. She stumbled on a story about a service dog helping a veteran and that story sparked an idea. That idea, to start a service dog agency for veterans, gave Brett new hope. Together, the two formed K9s for Warriors, which pairs veterans with service dogs. You may view the trailer here.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A featuring the film's co-producer and two cast members. 

Light refreshments will be served prior to showing the film at 12 noon.
