“Thank you for your service.”

That refrain can be heard time and again on patriotic holidays – like Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veterans Day – spoken to brave men and women who have served or are still serving in our nation’s military.

Regions Bank associates in Knoxville, Tennessee, have found a way to symbolically echo this heartfelt sentiment year-round to a special set of heroes – disabled veterans in need of canine companionship to overcome mobility issues.

Through a recent donation to the nonprofit Smoky Mountain Service Dogs, Regions is helping sponsor a designated pup that will be raised and trained over the next three years to be matched with a wounded warrior in need.

We could write for days about the incredible impact of Smoky Mountain Service Dogs. But the below video illustrates the nonprofit’s extraordinary significance in ways that go well beyond the written word. Take a moment, and take a look. Then consider how you, too, can support America’s brave warriors who could use some assistance from a thankful community.
