The LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry was invited to participate in the Air National Guard Yellow Ribbon Event for pre and post deployed service members and their families.
Veterans Robert Berquist with LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Jael (Trinity - Hobart, Indiana), Keith Buchmueller, Bruce Kothe with LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Tabby (St. Paul’s - Des Peres, Missouri) and Jeff Schulman with LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Samson (Zion - Marengo, Illinois) were honored to spend the weekend with military service members and their families to bring a sense of joy and comfort to all.
Some families were welcoming home their loved ones from deployment, while others had to say good-bye as mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters prepared to deploy with the Air National Guard.
"The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. He is my refuge, my savior, the One who saves me from violence. I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and He saved me from my enemies." 2 Samuel 22:2-4
