Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, together with the American Warrior Initiative (AWI), surprised U.S. Army Veteran Kevin Schmidt with a service dog last Wednesday June 26th, 2019.  Over 300 people showed up in Leesville, Louisiana to hear Gold Star Mother Karen Vaughn speak, as well as witness the presentation of Kevin’s new service dog.

The Veteran thought he was just speaking at a Freedom Tour with AWI, at the Christian Living Fell Church. According to KALB.com, after a quick ceremony for his faithful service dog he already had, he was surprised with a new companion. “Since I was isolating myself, to have a service dog gives me more opportunities to go out in public. Include myself in things and go places that I was pulling myself out of” Schmidt said.
