Clare Songbirds Publishing House is pleased to announce the release of The Brave: A Collection of Poetry and Prose. The Brave is written by United States military veterans and their family members chronicling all aspects of military service and life. All royalties from this collection will go to support of the work of Semper K9.
Semper K9’s mission is unlike any other, they utilize rescue dogs in their service dog selection process, they also custom train each dog to the specific needs of their wounded veterans. They provide training and support for the entire family, through the Family Integration Program, they teach caregivers and other family members the skills needed to support the veteran in their recovery through animal-assisted therapy. Using rescued and donated dogs, they provide mental health mobility service dogs free of charge to wounded service members to enhance their quality of life.
“For many citizens who sleep well at night, it’s easy to think of soldiers, airmen, marines, and sailors as shields instead of people. Protectors who keep us safe, but The Brave makes it impossible to see them as anything but human. The poems and stories in this book reinforce this humanity in a wonderful collection that gives the rest of us a peek into the hearts of the bravest among us.”
~Jim Mitchem, USAF veteran, author, editor of the book Gone Dogs
