I can't begin to imagine the sacrifice these handlers are prepared to make each day. I'm the person that starts crying like a baby when I know an animal in a movie is about to die. Not only do these handlers risk themselves personally, they are also responsible for their ever-loyal partners, too. Nobody can work side by side with these dogs daily and not become firmly attached to them.
I'm hoping some of you might consider participating in donating to a care package. I think we might run the risk of making an overseas, deployed holiday, a bit less horrible for a few K9 Handlers and their dogs. Here's the original post:
Medical supplies for both handlers and their dogs aren't needed as they're provided for by the military.
Most importantly, please include a little note or letter with a few kind words. I know if I was overseas away from home, reading a letter from someone that cared enough to think of me would mean a ton. You can send the package yourself, or you can mail it to me and I will send a group package. If you send your package directly, please keep in mind that it takes about 2 weeks to arrive and you must have a soldier's name (in this case - Clint Reynolds, Program Manager K9 Unit APO AE 09321 - see in letter above) or your package won't make it there. I'm aiming to send a group package around the first week of December. If you have any questions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org , or you can send your package and letter to me directly at Webldr LLC, my hubby's software company that's graciously donated the temporary use of their PO box!
