Mental illness, namely Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is the most common injury in troops returning from the Middle East, and too often, it leads to suicide, but a special event could bring help to those soldiers need.

It's the "Bark Business Tea" and it's to raise funds for “K9s for Warriors,” a program that matches veterans with trained shelter dogs. It's the brain child of animal advocate and author Wendy Diamond, who has recruited a real winner to work with her on this project, Coach Sean Payton.

Diamond joins the Eyewitness Morning News to discuss K9s for Warriors, Bark Buisness Tea, how she got Sean Payton interested in her project and her new book "How to Train Your Boss to Roll Over."
