On this Memorial Day weekend, here's a great way to help service men and women who are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.

From Memorial Day to Independence Day, Dog Bless You and explore.org will provide up to 100 companion and service dogs to returning soldiers who suffer from PTSD.

All you have to do is go to the Dog Bless You Facebook page. For every 5,000 “Likes” the page receives, explore.org will donate a companion or service dog to a war veteran.

As of Sunday afternoon, 184, 375 people have "liked" the page, meaning 36 veterans are closer to a life-changing companion.
