How Exciting! 

Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs’ Recipient, John and his Service Dog, Ranger have been chosen by the Pittsburgh Steelers to announce the 5th draft pick in this year’s NFL Draft!

John is a veteran of Afghanistan, an Army Captain, and Bronze Star recipient. He has been chosen as part of the NFL’s Salute to Service Program.

John was lucky enough to have a ceremonial pairing with Ranger done during a Steelers game in 2016, and he must have made quite the impression! The Steelers confirmed the rumors today, and you can read their full press release here:
