Until Tuesday by Luis Carlos Montalvan

Until Tuesday

A veteran of combat in the Iraqi war, Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan never imagined the toll his military experiences would take.  After he returned home, wounded and suffering from PTSD, Montalvan struggled with the most mundane of chores – going outside and interacting with strangers proved nearly impossible at times.  But then he heard about an organization that made service dogs available to wounded soldiers.  ECAD (Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities) and the dog he received, Tuesday, changed his life.

I’m so glad I happened upon this book.  It’s an interesting and eye-opening account of Montalvan’s experiences in the war, the reality of PTSD, and the hope that service dogs can offer wounded veterans like him.  It definitely expanded upon what I knew on these subjects – and Montalvan showed how important it is that we all become more educated about PTSD and service dogs.  I highly recommend this book.
