Captain Luis Carlos Montalván is a highly decorated 17-year veteran of the U.S. Army. After tours in the Iraq War, he returned home to face a different set of challenges: physical wounds, traumatic brain injury and crippling PTSD. Enter Tuesday, a Golden Retriever skilled in assisting the disabled, himself emotionally wounded during his training process. Each turned out to be exactly what the other needed, creating an unbreakable bond which healed each other’s souls. “Until Tuesday” has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list numerous times since 2011. Luis and Tuesday live in New York City and frequently travel and lecture about their written work and advocacy. Their projects include a major motion picture based on “Until Tuesday;” an independent documentary film, titled “Buried Above Ground” in which Luis is co-featured; and co-hosting “Tails of Valor,” a forthcoming television program about heroes who overcome enormous obstacles or put themselves in harm’s way to save others.
All proceeds from this exclusive first time visit to St. Louis benefit Stray Rescue of Saint Louis and Warriors Heart Foundation. In conjunction with this exclusive visit to St. Louis, Luis and Tuesday will be visiting the Jefferson Barracks VA Medical Center PTSD Ward on Sunday Sept 22. Luis and Tuesday hope that through these visits they can shed light not only on the plight of those who suffer from PTSD, but also to the epidemic of abused and homeless animals and the incredible ability they have to enrich our lives.
