SELMA, N.C. (WNCN) – After two tours of duty in Iraq, Robert Hambrick came home with photographs and medals.
But Robert Hambrick also came home with a traumatic brain injury and PTSD.
His wife, Erin Hambrick, began to fear for her safety and the safety of their son, Conner.
Robert Hambrick’s sleepwalking took over the family’s lives.
“He would wake up in the middle of the night, pick Conner up out of his crib and walk outside. We had incidents where it was life threatening to all of us and we knew something had to be done,” Erin Hambrick said.
Robert Hambrick received treatment and medication but he also got help from a new companion.
Wednesday at 6 p.m. on WNCN, see how a Durham-based organization Wags 4 Tags saved Hambrick from self-destruction by pairing him with a rescue dog.
WNCN is proud to partner with the Veterans Empowering Veterans organization to help veterans and their families.
Also on Wednesday, WNCN will host a live phone bank from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
People can call 1-888-309-7437 and speak with members of the Veterans Empowering Veterans about questions surrounding PTSD, housing, and financial issues.
If you are call after those hours, please contact Veterans Empowering Veterans at (910) 223-3213.
