To Be of Service is a feature-length documentary film about war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress who are paired with a service dog to help them regain their lives. These vets' experience of returning home is often wrought with depression and a wrenching disconnect from the world they once inhabited. But through extraordinary personal effort and scholarship programs, thousands of vets have been paired with trained service dogs and the outcomes have been life changing.


Followed by live-streamed conversation with film subject Sylvia Bowersox and her service dog Timothy, and moderated by Tom Champion of General Electric.
