After working there for 19 years as a biologist, Bill Campbell made the decision to re-enlist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Even though he had spent the previous decade serving as an executive officer in the national guard, he was willing to settle for a lesser rank and a lower salary in order to have the chance to serve his country once again.

Between 2004 and 2005, Campbell was sent to Iraq, where he assisted in the management of security at a Forward Operating Base. Over the course of the previous year, his station had been struck by a number of bombs, and he had suffered two concussions as a result. After only one explosion, he had shrapnel that was dangerously near to an irreparable part of his brain.

Although Campbell seems to be in fair health today, the military nevertheless considers him to be 100 percent handicapped despite the fact that he is now serving. He suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), memory loss, and a crippling fear of being around large groups of people.

One of the few things that may help a veteran who has suffered serious brain damage from their time in the military? Naturally, it’s a guide or service dog.

When Campbell was given Pax, his whole world was turned upside down. Because of the companionship and solace that he derived from this magnificent dog, he was eventually able to readjust to life in the civilian world. However, prior to making such a significant impact on Campbell’s life, Pax was a gift to someone else.

At the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, which is situated on the outskirts of New York City, Laurie is serving her sentence as an inmate. Since he was a young puppy, Pax had been under her care and receiving instruction from her.

I am sure that the reunion that takes place at the facility between Pax and Bill Campbell is unlike any other that you have ever seen. Hear what his trainer has to say about him in the following video:
