Tracey was a technician in the US Navy, deployed to the Middle East as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, and then to Somalia. Like many returning veterans, Tracey dealt with issues sleeping, feeling comfortable in crowds, and safe in her own home.

Trainers say Tracy and Reese are certain to graduate very soon, thanks to Tracy’s continued motivation and effort. Reese had a difficult time with a previous handler, but Tracy has been instrumental in helping him work through his reactivity issues.
