Dolphins Bring Healing To Veterans With Disabilities, PTSD

For Vietnam War veteran Mandy Rodriguez, working with dolphins proved a life-changing escape from the haunting memories of wartime horrors.

Rodriguez decided to help other veterans by inviting them to participate in activities at his Dolphin Research Center.

CNN reports Rodriguez has hosted disabled veterans and others suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, hoping that time spent with the dolphins will bring them the same relief he has found.
