GySgt Cory Will, USMC (ret.)

My name is Cory and in 2014 retired from the Marine Corps as a Gunnery Sergeant.

SAMPSON is the dog that I was paired with and we're working together to get to live with the symptoms of PTSD and to assist with my symptoms of TBI. With the help of SAMPSON my two daughters are getting their Dad back. Day by day we take back control of my life from the PTSD so I can enjoy it again. I am currently pursing my BA in Pyschology at George Mason University and I have also obtained my license as a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist in the state of V.A. Without learning how to use SAMPSON to mitigate my symptoms of PTSD, and to motivate myself to work towards recovery, none of this would be possible.

Cory & SAMPSON's Pay It Forward Campaign has been supported by the Moss Creek Marines and American Dog Rescue.
