In the past 15 years Major Perry Jarmon has been deployed four times. Today, he is part of a different kind of operation, "Operation Free Ride." It's part of a program called horses for heroes, a non-profit organization made up of equestrian facilities nationwide,  designed to introduce troops, veterans, first responders and their families to horses.

Brenda Randle owns one of these facilities. She's been working with the animals for thirty years. Psychologists say this can help those vets who work with  horses to cut down on their stress.For Major Jarmon, who does not suffer from PTSD, Oeration Free Ride is a great way to be with family without any hassles.
