On Thanksgiving, the LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs and their veteran handlers attended various events to offer love and show their appreciation for those serving our country. We were honored to share our time with them since they couldn't be with their families.
LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Blitz (LCC Squad), Brutus (LCC Squad), and Nigel (LCC Staff) visited a group of 30+ Navy Recruits at American Legion Post 208 in Arlington Heights, Illinois. The recruits came from Great Lakes Naval Training Station in North Chicago. Each year the Legion Post sponsors a day for the recruits to call home, enjoy a home-cooked Thanksgiving meal and spend a day away from the Training Station. The LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry has been present for the last three years. The recruits loved seeing and meeting the Kare 9s.
