VINELAND, New Jersey (WPVI) -- South Jersey native Jeremy Piatt came from a military family. His father and grandfather served in the U.S. Navy. So once he graduated high school, he decided to join. "It's the least I could do for the country," he said. He started with the Navy in 2003 and served four years on active duty. Then, in 2007, he decided to take his talents to the Army, where he served for about five years. Now a disabled veteran, Piatt struggles with post traumatic stress disorder. And over the last four years, he and his fiance have been purchasing and raising birds as emotional support animals.
