Two nurses are training puppies for veterans.

They're doing so at Touro Hospital for a new program called United States Veterans Service Dogs.

Most of the veterans in the program have post-traumatic stress disorder.

Nurses Maggie Homer and Maggie Watson are teaching the golden Labradors basic commands and incorporating them into daily therapy with patients.
