Farewell Event for California Army National Guard Unit, Company C 1st Battalion, 184th Infantry Division
All LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs and their handlers located in California were invited by the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 233 to attend a Farewell Event for California Army National Guard Unit, Company C 1st Battalion, 184th Infantry Division on Saturday, January 7th. There was also a Unit from the California Air National Guards from Bay Area.
Aaron (St. John’s - Napa, California)
Genesis (Good Shepherd - Turlock, California)
Micah (Light of the Valley - Elk Grove, California)
Rahab (St. Andrew’s - Stockton, California)
Reuben (First Lutheran - Yuba City, California)
The LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs and their veteran handlers greeted approximately 200+ troops and families (around 400 people).
Brigadier General Smiley, the Commander of the California Army National Guard, stopped by and thanked the teams for being there and took a picture with Aaron, Rahab and Reuben. It is always such an honor to thank our troops and their families for their service, especially before a deployment! We told a number of the troops and family members that our churches pray for our military and their families, especially those deployed. These troops were being deployed the next day. Please keep them and their families in your prayers during their 6-9 months of deployment!
