Veterans association to hold movie screening on Saturday

As part of a VetTogethers event, The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) will host a family friendly movie screening on Saturday.

On June 27, the IAVA will show Max, a movie about a military working dog and his handler. Complimentary tickets are available for IAVA members and their families.

"This film is about much more than a hero dog," said IAVA CEO and Founder Paul Rieckhoff. "It is about the more than 2,500 military working dogs that served alongside our service men and women, saving countless lives."

The movie directly tackles the issues of PTSD experienced by veterans and service animals working in combat zones. Service dogs are known to provide emotional support to individuals suffering from depression, stress, anxiety, and PTSD.

The showing is at Cinemark Perkins Rowe Theatre at 4:00 p.m.
