IMPACT YOUR WORLD: Kathy Griffin Helps Wounded Vets

Posted: 08:25 PM ET

Kathy Griffin Salutes America's Vets

kgriffMultiple Emmy-award-winner Kathy Griffin, star of Bravo’s "My Life on the D-List," has embraced America’s VetDogs and the work they do for America’s heroes.  A VetDogs recipient was invited by Griffin to speak about how the organization changed his life and even had the added fun of introducing the comedian at each of her recent sold-out concerts in New York.

Griffin mentions America’s VetDogs when she makes any media appearance.  Recent appearances have included Rachael Ray’s Emmy-winning daytime talk show, The Bonnie Hunt Show, CNN’s New Year’s Eve celebration with Anderson Cooper, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!  Griffin has visited Iraq with the USO and has made numerous visits to Walter Reed Army Medical Center to entertain soldiers recovering from their injuries.

The VetDogs project is a new program from the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind, Inc.  Since its beginning in 1946, the Foundation has always served the needs of veterans, but it has done so as part of its overall mission to improve the quality of life for people who are blind or visually impaired.

In recent years, the Foundation has come to recognize that as veterans age, and as wounded soldiers return home from the global war on terrorism, there would be a greater need for guide dogs and specialized service dogs to help them maintain mobility and independence.

Thus VetDogs was born.  We realized that it was important to consolidate our outreach to disabled veterans to address these increased needs.  By building cooperative relationships with the military and the Department of Veterans Affairs, and by forging strategic partnerships with other guide and service dog schools to widen the options and availability of services to the veteran, we will ensure that disabled veterans receive all the benefits they need to live in dignity and independence.

We will train and supply guide dogs for the visually impaired veteran and service dogs for those who have disabilities other than blindness. In addition, training on Trekker, an orientation aid that uses GPS technology and digital maps to help blind and visually impaired people navigate unfamiliar territory, is also being offered.

The Guide Dog Foundation plans to be the standard by which the military and the VA measure assistance dog providers, and VetDogs is our way of recognizing the sacrifice made by our men and women in uniform

All of our services are provided at no cost to the veteran.   For more information go to VetDogs.org.

Lately, dogs (angels) are becoming more humanely humans than people. I fully support these wonderful creatures. My K-9 squad, Yorkshire Terrier (2) can teach morality and ethics to anyone. This is a great cause, making America greater! – Andy


Margie & Bridget   June 16th, 2009 8:57 pm ET

Love Kathy Griffin! We think she's funny!


Leyla   June 16th, 2009 9:09 pm ET

Dear Larry King
I appreciate all the efforts that media is putting to bring us the latest news of the chaos in Iran, however, we need some one to act. I see president Obama and UN members are not happy about this and express their feelings, but this is not going anywhere... I wish that the whole world would not recognize Ahmadinegad as a president. this may be a step towards changing..
Thank you
Leyla from BC, Canada


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

Even though the situation in Iran is difficult to see, I am happy the people are not taking this sitting down and are willing to protest against the government.

If we had protested against our government 8 years ago, we might not be in the mess today. With the Iraq war costing us not only in precious life of our soldiers and the lives of all the innocent people from Iraq, but ultimately, (including all the medical treatments for our soldiers) THREE TRILLION DOLLARS!!!


James31   June 16th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

Dodie – California,
Can we have one evening or one topic of discussion that does not lead to the usual negative soundbites about either the Dems or Repubs. We are talking about Iran. We protest our government; it's called voting. How many times have people posted here "you lost; get over it." Eight years ago and four later, "they won." I favor neither; prefer to evaluate one situation at a time without all the political party bias.


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:23 pm ET

What a wonderful idea... The Guide Dog Foundation! Not only are you saving dog lives, but also enriching humans as well. This is what I call... a win... win situation! Congratulations!!!


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

@James31

I won't be paying for this mess. You and your children, grand children, etc. will be!


Julie   June 16th, 2009 9:25 pm ET

That's Kathy Griffin? I thought Larry was interviewing Carrot Top!!


Julie   June 16th, 2009 9:28 pm ET

Kathy, Are you a lesbian??


James31   June 16th, 2009 9:29 pm ET

Dodie - so true and a mess it is; created by both parties over many years.

Larry, Kathy G is too funny but I hope we don't have another uprising about her jokes!


Kayla Ciccotti   June 16th, 2009 9:34 pm ET

i love kathy, i want to be her best friends, she is so cocky, and confident, i love it!


ckelly   June 16th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Thanks Larry-I love Kathy Griffin.

Great work Kathy helping the war vets!! and supporting the guide dog Foundation!! A great thing! You are too funny Kathy! You are a riot!


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:39 pm ET

James31

This was not about bashing the Repubs... as I am for neither party. This was aimed at ... we should have stood up to Bush, Cheney, Rove and others who have made billions off of us taxpayers. Its a shame we did not get together as a country and stand up like the people in Iran.

Kathy, you are really funny! I enjoy your transparency!


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:41 pm ET

Go Kathy!!! I feel the exact same way... LOL


Kayla Ciccotti   June 16th, 2009 9:42 pm ET

About Jon and Kate- I feel their marital issues are more annoying than the children, but that is an interesting take on Jon, love the reference to his hair plugs...cracks me up!


Julie   June 16th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

Kathy is a true pathetic waste of space. She thinks it's cool to be a bully in her 40's. She obviously didn't get enough hugs when she was a child, just go away already!


austin   June 16th, 2009 9:43 pm ET

That iranian lady said she is dying to live in her motherland again and you said, we all do, do you have another motherland?
On your book, my question is, how do you plan to go out of this journey, your 'exit strategy' from the show, what next?


Judith   June 16th, 2009 9:46 pm ET

Kathy is doing a wonderful job and thank you so very much.

As far as Iran.It's good that President Obama is keeping mum by not saying too much.It is up to the people there to decide who will be their leader.President Obama will be the one trying to work with who ever will become in charge.If he speaks up like some want then the winner
might not be the one the USA wants and it can lead into more nightmares.


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Kathy! Congratulations for being involved with a foundation that cares for a group of people that is often ignored. I have had several golden retrievers and they are the most loving dog.


Julie   June 16th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

Kathy, I doubt very much any soldier or vet would have any kind of respect for you considering how much you hate Bush. Just because your part of some charity to make yourself feel better doesn't excuse your disgusting and treasonous behavior!


Julie   June 16th, 2009 9:47 pm ET

I doubt very much any soldier or vet would have any kind of respect for you considering how much you hate Bush. Just because your part of some charity to make yourself feel better doesn't excuse your disgusting and treasonous behavior!


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:49 pm ET

@ Judith

I completely agree. I definitely prefer we keep our noses our of the business of Iran. Let the people of the country work it out.


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:50 pm ET

The DPRK considers this an act of Crime against them by the U.S. not just the journalists. This is extremely serious.


Kayla Ciccotti   June 16th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

@Julie- I think she does a wonderful job at “questioning authority” so to speak, she gives her opinion, despite what everyone else is saying…don’t you think..? But I get that she is kinda of being bully too, so I see where you’re coming from.


Jeannette   June 16th, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Larry, on occassion I enjoy viewing your show, but this evening I was beside myself and insulted by Kathy Griffith's stupid comments. Larry before having a guest host have them prescreened. I immediately changed the channel to Fox where I do not hear stupid comments from opinionators like Kathy about our former President's.


angela   June 16th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

Well, I was going to say something nasty, but then Kathy put down Trump, so we are ok now.


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 9:59 pm ET

lol Kathy lol


Susan   June 16th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

Kathy;
I have never blog a show before. But your comments made me so mad that I had to. The things that come out of your mouth that you may think are funny I find very offensive.
Really Larry is this the best you can do for a guest. She slams Sara Palin for defending her daughters name and she bashes our past president in a foul and discusting manner. I thing you are a very angry person Kathy. Go get help you are not funny any one who thinks its funny to talk about raping any women if 14 or 18 is sick. If this was a joke directed to an ethnic group would it still be funny? If it was about your Sister, Daughter, Grandmother or Mother would it still be funny?


Kayla Ciccotti   June 16th, 2009 10:00 pm ET

haha, thats funny angela!


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 10:01 pm ET

Angela... lol Kathy is NOT prejudiced. She questions everyone!!!


Kayla Ciccotti   June 16th, 2009 10:02 pm ET

dodie...this is true! good-night ya'll its been fun, maybe ill come back again...haha


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

Yes, we really need to stay out of Iran's business. We have muddled around the middle east for just too many years, making everyone hate us. It is their country. They will work it out eventually!


Ryan, VA   June 16th, 2009 10:06 pm ET

I have to say, Kathy's comments on Miss California loosing her crown sicken me. Does she not believe in freedom of religion? Is there yet another double standard? Are only some religions permitted to have morals and speak their mind? Are moral beliefs now prohibited, or are you just not supposed to speak your mind in the age of "Political Correctness"?


Carolyn in Kentucky   June 16th, 2009 10:23 pm ET

Larry you have all of my respect. I do not know how you managed to remain so neutral during some of Kathy's rediculous remarks. I had to change the station when she made her comments concerning the Letterman joke. His joke was totally inappropriate as was her comment that commedians should be able to joke about anything including kids and babies.

It is pretty sad when a comedian has to stoop so low as to use kids and babies for their jokes. Why should they bear the brunt of a comedians jokes when they have done nothing....just so a comedian can benefit.

THere is nothing worse than a person rationalizing an action at the expense of someone who cant really defend themselves.


raul   June 16th, 2009 10:30 pm ET

well Kathy was loud and so not funny . I have been watching larry king over the years but this was perhaps the show Id rather forget.


Mazie McNeal   June 16th, 2009 10:53 pm ET

Always enjoy your show but Kathy Griffin was great. What a charachter. Bet she is fun to be around.


Dodie ~ California   June 16th, 2009 11:02 pm ET

CNN sorry for making the statement here. I just wanted him to know, I was not ignoring him...

@ Mike, Syracuse, NY

I know you asked me several times the same question. I was not ignoring you. I was not allowed to answer you! I hope you see this here.

Sorry!!!


als   June 17th, 2009 12:21 am ET

I like Kathy Griffin she was funny.


Jillian - California   June 17th, 2009 12:58 am ET

Kathy did an amazing Job!!!! I woke up – Larry was on...and I haven't changed the channel because I just realized I have this tiny grin after listening to her... you speak the truth in a funny, harsh way - but nevertheless – the truth and I think you're hysterical. Two thumbs up ... thanks for all the laughs and smiles Kathy!


lenny   June 17th, 2009 2:32 am ET

kathy griffin is a loud mouth idiot and i just decided not to watch larry king anymore because of her .thanks


Ox   June 17th, 2009 4:01 am ET

Inviting that pathetic excuse for a woman, and advertising her hate-filled rantings, just shows how desperate CNN is. You are losing viewers so you bring in demented clowns.
There is nothing more un-American than this.


Gleb   June 17th, 2009 4:06 am ET

I like Kathy Griffin, she speaks her mind and is funny most of the time.
I am just tired of seeing LGBT community exploited in such cheap and degrading ways. We don't all, and arguably not even most of us, snap our fingers and roll our necks. Perpetuating stereotypes is never smart no matter what spin you try to put on it. More to the point on Kathy's latest appearance on Larry King: If you are not sure which pronoun (he or she) to use in reference to a particular person on national TV – ask them first! don't try to make a joke out of it – it's crass. Also, there's something wrong about presenting yourself as a friend and supporter of our community while at the same time claiming not to know what intersex means and trying to draw the Jonas brothers into it. More generally, it seems trendy lately among non-gay people to adopt this gay-friendly persona and be all campy and nonchalant about it, when in fact, more often then not, it serve only to further pigeonhole and marginalize our community in the eyes of the majority.


John Feestein   June 17th, 2009 5:36 am ET

Larry,

Sorry, I consider Katthy Griffin and her ilk the bottom of the dirty mouth TV gutter and am shocked that you honor her with your time and attention...really shocked. Is there no border left about decency in the USA? Try to answer that. Would love to hear your justification..and don\'t give me the old lst amendment...we are talking about decency on the air waves, not what is legal. I assume you know the difference.


HERB MCCOY   June 17th, 2009 5:43 am ET

I am laughing so hard right now watching this interview. Kathy just kicks my butt and i love her. I love you Kathy you rock big time.


Gemma   June 17th, 2009 5:46 am ET

Im sorry to say but Kathy Griffin is a loud mouth who has had too much plastic surgery and not enough etiquette in terms of manners or respect.. She was insulting and rude- an \'intentional\' way to get a little attention or a name for herself because she cannot get it in any other way. Im sorry Larry, Ive been following you for many years, and this is the only show I have had to turn off.


BHO - fan   June 17th, 2009 10:19 am ET

Now you Rethugs know how we feel about that IGNORANT, LOUD MOUTH Rush, Coulter


atsegga   June 17th, 2009 1:53 pm ET

The Borgen Project has some good info on the cost of addressing global poverty.

Vickie Gentry Carrico   June 17th, 2009 3:15 pm ET

Lov u Kathy.... did they wash the cup you were drinking out of ? When you took a drink you could see the tag like they took it out of the box and filled it for you ! who's job is that !! wash the cups please. Kathy is a big d-lister you can go no higher on d-list or she would be a c-lister love her show respect ha ha .


Chris   June 17th, 2009 3:37 pm ET

Kathy Griffin is nothing but a no-talent hack.. the D-list is even being too generous. she HAS to make stupid comments like that so someone/anyone will pay attention to her. there is nothing worse than a comedian who tries way too hard...

she's not funny, never was, and sounded like a total idiot on the show. don't make fun of a baby who is mentally challenged.


ed colon   June 17th, 2009 4:03 pm ET

kathy good for u LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


alex   June 17th, 2009 5:43 pm ET

kathy griffin: how cliche calling bush an idiot & moron. now that is cutting edge stuff. i suppose you can fly planes & win a presidential election -TWICE. oh, that's right, he was so stupid that he "rigged" the election & stole votes & forged his log book. he is not in office currently, so maybe it's time to catch up to what's going on now. look into some brain implants while you are at it-part of stimulus package?


M Christian   June 17th, 2009 6:53 pm ET

Kathy Griffin may be a "D-List" celebrity but I'd much rather here about her doing this than "A-List" celebrities getting arrested, doing drugs or cheating on their spouses.


Jean   June 18th, 2009 11:02 am ET

Kathy Griffin doesn't let S. Palin defend her daughter and calls her names. Then she goes on and on about Cher and her daughter's sex change and how Cher is soooo great in defending her daughter...can you say hypocrite? A mother is a mother... She looked Larry square in the face and said "do you know Cher?" Like Larry isn't in the loop or something? Well, Kathy do you know the Palins? or are you just judging?

I would hate to grow old and die and know that the only legacy I left behind to the world was filth and mean-spirited jargon...how very sad. I feel sorry for Kathy.

The world needs peace. She bashes everything but really she's just adding to the unrest. Calling people names and judging and letting us know that she is the queen of sludge...yeah...let's all aspire to be like that.


Pam Wright   June 18th, 2009 11:39 am ET

Glad to see Kathy is doing some good in her life – her comments toward the conservative group in this country are very disrespectful. Anytime I see her on a talk show, I immediately turn off.


Deborah Johnson   June 18th, 2009 4:07 pm ET

I would like the community know about my project in helping others

alonzodaniels.last-memories.com (my son)

We are planning several events in memory of our Angels that have been victims of a violent crime that caused them to lose their lives. We would like to obtain a building where parents, family members and friends can meet and express their feelings of grief and loss with others that share these same feelings. The place will be called “Fellowship Hall”.

I am a mother of a child that was murdered by such a crime. My son Alonzo Daniels died at the hand of Arthur Gary Bishop along with four other boys over the course of four years. My son was missing from 1979 until he was discovered along with the other four boys on July 24, 1983. Even though this was awhile ago, the pain is just as intense as if it happened yesterday. This is why we are planning a project called “Fellowship Hall”. There will be a grand opening when it is finished and ready for use. The tentative completion date is July 24, 2012.

Between now and February 2011 the proceeds from the events and shows produced by Black Pearl Industry Inc. will go back to the community as well as towards the building fund for the “Fellowship Hall”. The first show we are planning will be held on June 20, 2009 at the Salt Lake Community College 4600 South Redwood Road. I would like to extend an invitation to your company for any monetary donations and other assistance in respect to audio equipment, lighting, printing, transportation and venues for this event and any of the events to follow.

sharyn   June 19th, 2009 7:22 pm ET

I saw Larry King (for the 1st time) and then I saw his guest Kathy. The one who wont give acknowledgement to Jesus (privately) but will 'trust ' the Pres who talked about going to war in Afganistan, BEFORE he got elected, and now he has given away money to the rich.
Before the election he spoke against the 'rich' and against the 'war'. Kathy may be a 'bully' but I know shes an 'ignorant bully'. So Kathy, SHUT UP.
I want the $7000 the Repulicans wanted to give to each household.
Kathy, .. you owe me $7000.


Roy Mabe Jr.   June 21st, 2009 11:43 am ET

Kathy Griffin is one of the best comediennes today.


Sensei   June 26th, 2009 3:08 am ET

It is the first time in my silent refuge as a master resting in the mountain, silent away far from the public eye around the world. I am coming out to voice my gratitude for our fallen hero. In doing this I will review who am I. However, the time for the masters knowledge is upon us again to hand it to the world, to save the world from there deep sleep and unconsciousness. I am going to share some very rare insights that I believe you can share with the world, And will create great news with the tragic passing of Micheal. I would like to share my insights and gratitude for one of our greatest spirits born in our space and time. I will share some insights that will greatly contribute to your news coverage and give incredible insights to legends and heroes in our time and space. LET'S BEGIN In every decade of time, God creates spirits in time to be born and a destiny imprinted in time before there births. Micheal Jackson, is one of those hero's. The Hero's in time have a very unique and different life of speed learning and experiences. There speed of birth, learning, and developing is super human. Often they would do daring things, to show courage and daring, which lower human that lives in black and white don't understand. The Hero has great courage unmatched by normal people. I mean great courage in their spirit. Where all great inventions come from, that energy was given by God, and decided before they were born. Michael did great things daring and many people didn't understand because the society was in fear. Michael was the spirit, child, of the father of ying and yang, light and dark. In his music you will see the human transcending of time. Love, hate, sadness, worry, fear etc. As the writings of our greatest history of seerers, philosophizers, and spiritual master of our time, they say "Hero's are God's greatest gift to the world". And, indeed they are for all there contributions and inventions humanity would not transcend and evolve from the their animal nature or instincts. Michael became Global because it was chosen from the high master. The Hero is born in many forms, arts, religions, and art forms. They take many different roles to play, some to do public speaking, war, protect, and care. Michael's music took us to the place of that gift of spark of feeling incredible and joyful. A place inside that felt in Heaven, forget all the hard time in the world. That place that the people's opinions or beliefs doesn't matter. Master's teach leaders of all great time. Michael's music transcended time and space to UNITY. This is man's greatest challenge, hardest lesson, and tremendous lack of awareness in earth. It causes war, death, lost, and all the destruction energies on our planet. More talk about that important subject latter. But, let's talk why a legend dies? I think the world wants to know. That is why they can't believe it. I mean many families across the world have family members older than Michael and why did he die so mysteriously?
It is the nature to love, crucified, hate, and love again our legends. It is the nature of lower human and will always be. Michael went through what I went through. When you look very closely to the legends all, play this role in time. Along side with there greatest life works. One would call it there great heroic work. Then when it is time for them to leave, they must go and leave their legacy to love. And, yes my friend their legacy will teach us again, and even closer. We love them and want them, but the heaven calls their hero model to come home to heaven. What we see as great death, but a privilege to cross over to the other side and be in heaven. All legends have a mystery death, things just happen that they must exit from earth. And, it's because there time is done. I know exactly what Michael was going through, because I had a similar experience that could have lead me to death. But, my destiny has a different course and faith had a different course. I am too one of the Secret Heroes of the High Secret Knowledge in time and space. Still the knowledge is hidden from humanity. I went through a sacred mystic test, that my old spirit died and given a creative one. Hard for the book or degree college people to understand. But, I transcended time and space. And, delight in my inner powers everyday. Although, I don't have the shinny Hollywood lights on me, and indeed they would want to, if they can see a great man. It was not meant for me. There are Heroes of God that are silent Masters and they are alone in the mountain. However, it is time for me to come out again, from the mountain down to the city of darkness. To shine the light of the Heroes teachings. There is an old philosophy manuscript that says, "For every 100 years a prince is born into a great King", I believe that was Michael. The death of Michael and Ferra is no accident. It is God showing us a sign. What is he singling to us?

PS I hope you like my pictures in words, it is terms that Master use. If you would like to do a special story, I would be open to talking to you. These are just a few topics that I would talk to you about missing in our world.

The Hero and Nature
The Hero's Teachings
The Artificial And Mechanical Human World
The Societies Darkness Without The Hero
The Passing Of Higher Knowledge To Another In Time
The Death Of A Hero And The Birth
The Hero's Tragic Death
The Hero That Live On After Death
What He Leaves Behind
The Hero Uniting The World

Sensei (You will learn my real name in time)

You can reach me through email, if you wish.

PS I was told by a seerer that I would die and leave great works behind for the world. That time is near...


Mary T   June 27th, 2009 10:45 am ET

Larry, I have been watching all of the news on Michael Jackson, as we all have. When I heard the 911 call, it left me chilled. To think that his doctor was there, and obviously trying to do CPR on him, and what is so stunning, is that apparently he was trying to perform CPR on him while he was on his bed, this would have almost guaranteed complete failure. I was appalled. I am a retired RN, and CPR is not usually sucessful on a soft surface. Wha a shame. The authorities really need to investigate this aspect of it.


joe baltierra   June 27th, 2009 12:33 pm ET

Michael jackson was a wonderful entertainer. He did so much to inspire so many people around the world. This man should be remembered for all the charities ,organizations and people that he helped. He left behind so much in the short 50 years that he was here. Now all these things that were going on behind the scenes are all starting to come out. His money issues, his appearance issues. It never fails! As soon as a well known person passes on, everyone is there to talk about all the bad things that they supposedly know about. How do you think it makes the family feel to have to listen and read all this garbage being put out there about their loved one who just passed away. The family is devastated in their loss people, what' s wrong with you! Are all those things being reported about him really necessary ? Are ratings that important that you have to hurt the family even more by some of the stories being put out there? Yes Michael was a superstar. He was an incredible performer. That's all that should be said about him. Quit slamming the man now that he's gone from this earth.

Michael Jackson
You will always be the greatest dancer and singer.
You know how to rock
You are the kindest person.
You have helped a lot of people
Let us remember the good
You will rise again
You will be truly missed
Michael
Incredible
Charming
happy smile
always ready to entertain
extremely talented
lovely one always
My prayers are sent to your entire family
Losing a love one is not easy no matter
what life they lead.
Love ya!
A long time fan!
Tears of dance and sadness

My co-worker flew to see her son before he is deployed to Afganistan. The military pushed the date he leaves out further. She would have liked to remain to see him off. However the airline will require her to spend many $$$ to change her flight. Shouldn't the public try to get the airlines to support the military families by changing the rules in these type circumstances? Other business do what they can to say "Thank you, Troops!!" This is one way the airlines can show appreciation that really doesn't cost them more than the inconvenience of a flight date shuffle.
