On Saturday, May 7, the LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry participated in a wonderful community event, "Military Appreciation Day." The event was held by students and the community to bring awareness to PTSD and was attended by more than 200 people.
The LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry was part of the Homers for Heroes ceremony, between softball games, honoring Veterans and First Responders at Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois. LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Brutus (LCC Squad), Flex (LCC Squad), Nigel (LCC Staff), and Samson (Zion - Marengo, Illinois), along with their veteran handlers, joined local Fire Departments, National Guard, and Reserve units. The Marine Corps Color Guard presented the Colors as the National Anthem was sung.
