LCC’s Kare 9® Military Ministry was invited to attend American Legion Post 673’s Annual Vet Fest in Huntley, Illinois. It was Post 673’s 7th Vet Fest and we are proud to have been asked back.
LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Butch (LCC Squad), Brutus (LCC Squad), Flex (LCC Squad), Mary (St. Paul's - Janesville, Wisconsin), and Reba (LCC Squad) with their veteran handlers, and LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Julia (King of Glory - Elgin, Illinois) met a lot of wonderful veterans, active duty military personnel and civilians. We also had the honor to meet Congressman Bill Foster of Illinois’ 11th Congressional District.
It is most gratifying when both veterans and civilians tell you that they remember the dogs from prior Vet Fests and they were hoping we’d be attending again this year.
