Vets helping vets beyond prison walls

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Veterans with disabilities are getting a second chance at a normal life.

It comes from fellow vets who are serving hard times behind bars. CNN reports on a prison program bringing together service members who have struggled along the way. The bond between veterans extends beyond the bars of this Maryland prison.

Kent Brewer's life spiraled out of control after his years in the Coast Guard. Brewer took in "Trooper" over a year ago. He agreed to raise and train the dog in prison, always aware, he'll have to give him up eventually.

Trooper and the puppies roam the yard at North Dorm. They're raised by inmates with the hope of someday helping a disabled veteran.
