The idea for Dogs2DogTags (D2DT) came to Torre Willadsen when he was deployed as a civilian contractor working with military dogs in 2012. During his time with the 7th Marines, he developed close bonds with dogs and dog handlers. When dog handler, Chris Van Etten, was wounded, Torre worked hard to help keep Chris and his dog, Harley, together during Chris’ recovery. Torre saw firsthand the profound effect a canine companion could have on a wounded man’s frame of mind during a difficult time. That’s when Torre knew he wanted to bring that kind of unconditional support to those back home struggling with post-traumatic stress.
