Andy Canning, the past recipient at GYSSD, is eager for the upcoming event.
“This, in particular, the scramble is my favorite to play in, out of the numerous scrambles I get into every year. Outside of the outstanding facility it’s held at and the great benefits added in for the players from Got Your Six, I also get to support an organization that helps our nation's heroes, as well as assisting their families to regain their life and independence,” explained Canning.

Got Your Six Support Dogs (GYSSD) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to providing specialized service dogs to veterans and first-responders suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder and/or sexual trauma. Their mission is to help these men and women regain their lives through the healing power of dogs. The organization began in 2015 due to the need of veterans and first-responders requesting PTSD service dogs when all other methods of treatment have failed. Headquartered in Maryville, Ill., GYSSD trains service dogs and matches them with veterans and first-responders throughout the U.S. at no cost to them. They also train therapy dogs to serve local area residents in nursing homes, hospitals, schools, etc., and offer basic obedience training services to the public.
