Effective March 15th, 2016 the Indy Blue Star Mothers has partnered with a Hoosier Service Dog Trainer "Ultimate Canine" to provide service dogs for our Hoosier veterans that suffer with PTSD.
President of the Indy Blue Star Mothers, Vickie Sullinger says, "All of our Indy Blue Star Mothers cannot be more excited to partner with Ultimate Canine to provide professionally trained service dogs to our Hoosier veterans and making an impact in their lives. The wait times for veterans to begin living with their service animal will be drastically decreased by our efforts we have with our Hoosier communities’ involvement. Ultimate Canine currently
trains K9's, therapy and service dogs professionally. When we educate our communities that we are still losing on average of 22 veterans every day to suicide and those that are directly affected by their deaths is extremely important, but we can all make a difference. The stigma attached to their trauma needs to end and it starts right here in our communities so that veterans seek help that is available. Veterans will be able to begin the application process in the coming weeks on our website so that we can assist Ultimate Canine with the red tape while Ultimate Canine focuses on what they do best, training service dogs. Thank you and God bless those that have and still sacrifice today."

Blue Star Mothers is nearly 75 years old that began with mothers that volunteered throughout the tough times of World War II. They worked in hospitals, train stations, packed care packages for soldiers and were a working part of homeland security during times our time of war. The organization waned in size over the years but has held together by mothers showing pride in both their children and country.
We are mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, foster mothers and female legal guardians who have children serving in the military, guard, or reserves, or children who are veterans. We support each other and our children while promoting patriotism. Our organization focuses on our mission every single day providing support for active duty service personnel, assisting Veterans organizations, and is available to assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong and never, ever forsake our troops, our veterans or the families of our fallen heroes.
