SAN DIEGO (KGTV)--Any pet owner knows that the unconditional support a four-legged friend provides can often be the best therapy anyone could ever wish for.
That's why the USO San Diego has partnered with the local organization Animal Therapy Pets to be there for the men and women of our military, and their families, who are always there to protect the nation.
10News reporter Hannah Mullins visited the USO Neil Ash Airport in San Diego where every Monday and Tuesday the hustle and bustle of travel is made a little less stressful on those deploying and those just arriving in San Diego for a new adventure --- like sailor James Colburn.
"See, that's what I love," Colburn said as he pet golden retriever Andy. "They follow their owners wherever they go."
But the one place Colburn's dog can't follow him is his here -- where he is to be permanently stationed on USS Comstock. That's why he appreciated Andy's presence so much.
