Citadel Canine Mission

Debbie and Stephen Bowen, at Branch 34 of the Royal Canadian Legion on Saturday, show their support and help raise funds for Citadel Canine Mission, which provides rescue dogs to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. As parents of a son in the military, they see the importance in helping those with PTSD. Their son, Master Cpl. Tyson Bowen, served in Afghanistan in 2007 and 2010. He is now stationed at Gagetown, N.B. Hugh Muir, an executive member with Branch 34, was pleased with the turnout for the event. They had hoped to raise at least $300 at the potluck, but far surpassed that. He estimated they had raised $1,000. AMANDA JESS – THE NEWS
