From Suicidal to Serving Others: The Story of a Veteran and His Dog

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV) 

Cole Lyle held a gun in his hand, ready to take his own life, when a friend knocked on his door.

“I’ll be honest with you, in my opinion, it is divine intervention because my finger was literally on the trigger,” Lyle, a Marine veteran, says.

After six years in the military, Lyle was struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. He had tried medication and was going to therapy, but none of it worked, he recalls. That’s when he began exploring the option of getting a service dog.

Lyle spent $10,000 of his own money on Kaya, a loving German shepherd, because the Department of Veterans Affairs didn’t provide funds for acquiring service dogs.

Kaya brought needed purpose back to his life, Lyle says, so he became an advocate of veterans getting access to service dogs.

Today, Lyle is executive director of Mission Roll Call, a nonprofit that brings the needs of veterans directly to members of Congress.

Lyle joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to share his personal story and to explain how all Americans can help veterans who are struggling after their service to America.
