the program's director Neil Eckrich said only two dogs have been paired with veterans since Congress authorized the program in 2001.

Is this only for the Houston area? There were more than 2 dogs placed with wounded warriors at Walter Reed alone.

I believe it’s on the national level. I wonder if the dogs at Walter Reed were privately funded?

From the story:

“...Donations allow nonprofit groups to train dogs without government help, but the organizations often have waiting lists and sometimes veterans have to travel to get the dogs and pay other fees.”
