A chance to give back to local veterans

(IMG:WPMI){ }A chance to give back to local veterans

More than $400,000 is being divided out to help seven organizations who are dedicated to serving veterans across southern Alabama.

One of the organizations receiving some of that funding is the Equine Therapy Group in Baldwin County.

Officials with the group tell us the veterans do a variety of activities with the horses to help them work through any difficulties they may be experiencing after serving in the military. The animals are great at reading the veterans' body language and emotions.
