A Marine veteran in Wisconsin is helping vets across the country overcome their PTSD through his multiple charities.

Karl Klimes owns Moo-Lon Labe Home for Veterans and Semper Fi farms.

Part of his work involves breeding German Shepherds, donating them to military veterans with PTSD.

Two of those dogs will be sent to veterans in Georgia, two will head to Texas and one will go to a veteran in Florida. 

Klimes said his service dog has helped him through his own struggles after deployment.

"If she sees me rolling or tossing in my sleep, she'll hit me with her paw until I wake up," Klimes said. "There's various things that these dogs can be trained to do to help veterans with disabilities."

Klimes also offers equine therapy on his farm in White Lake, Wisconsin.
