Army Veteran and service dog graduate college together

KINGSVILLE, TX (KRIS/NBC News) — Army veteran Matthew Walbeck’s best friend was by his side as he received his college diploma Friday.

Titan, Walbeck’s service dog, accompanied him to the graduation ceremony, decked out in his very own cap and gown.

Walbeck says after two grueling tours in Bosnia, he never thought he would earn a business degree. Now, he hopes his story will inspire others.

“Just being able to accomplish this, hopefully show other veterans that you can do it, it may be tough but you can do it,” said Matthew Walbeck.
