A disabled veteran in New Jersey is doing a great service in his community by sharing his love for ducks with the elderly and children in his community. It has helped him with his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and it has been a blessing to others also.

South NJ Veteran has a History of Serving in the Military

6ABC News reported that “South New Jersey native Jeremy Piatt came from a military family” and wanted to join after graduating high school to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. He signed up and served on active duty in the U.S. Navy starting in 2003 for four years. Then Jeremy chose to serve in the U.S. Army starting in 2007 and was on active duty for five years until 2013.

He says, “It’s the least I could do for the country,” but he has candidly struggled with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in the years since, now living as a disabled veteran.
