Last weekend the Air National Guard held their Yellow Ribbon Event for pre and post deployers at Santa Clara, California.
"The Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) is a Department of Defense-wide effort to promote the well-being of National Guard and Reserve members, their families, and communities by connecting them with resources throughout the deployment cycle. Through Yellow Ribbon events, Service members and loved ones connect with local resources before, during, and after deployments. Reintegration during post-deployment is a critical time for the National Guard and Reserve members, as they often live far from military installations and other members of their units."
LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Aaron (St John’s - Napa Valley, California), and LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Micah (Light of the Valley - Elk Grove, California), and Rahab (St Andrews - Stockton, California) traveled to Santa Clara to be there for those who serve with the Air National Guard and their families. The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were part of their “Yellow Brick Road to Success,” which helped connect the Air National Guard men and women with local resources.
It was good to bring smiles and some joy to those that the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and their handlers met on Saturday. The LCC K-9 ministry teams were honored to serve the Air National Guard at the Yellow Ribbon Event.
