Our Veterans have given us a gift that can never fully be re-paid. But Harley Davidson of Quantico is hosting an event to benefit paws4vets and give service dogs to Veterans which is a great start.

Imagine you've enlisted to serve in the military and then you are injured and have to leave the military with a medical condition. It can be a daunting experience. You're used to serving and protecting others, being strong and independent and though you still can be all of those things, inside you feel different than what you used to be. As a result, some close themselves off, some drink, some hide their feelings and some sadly make the choice not to go on. 

I personally used to simply not leave the house unless it was absolutely necessary which could easily mean a week of solitude. Until....AIM HI (Animals in the Military Helping Individuals) gave me SASSI. She is a Labrador Retriever that helped me get to .......today. She got me out of the house which gave me the opportunity to meet people and get connected with other Veterans doing things to help more Veterans. She is well trained, she is comforting, she is extremely intelligent and loyal beyond what you could ever imagine. There are Veterans who need a SASSI in their lives. Unfortunately many are on long wait lists and cannot afford the cost on their own. 

For Veterans (and others), service dogs give independence, support, reliance and security. Harley Davidson of Quantico and myself want to do our part to help Veterans be partnered with exceptionally trained service dogs who can give them all of these gifts through paws4vets. paws4vets is a non-profit organization that breeds, trains and partners service dogs with Veterans, Active Duty Military and their dependents.  Please help us give back to those who have given so much to us already.

Several businesses and individuals have donated their time, effort, gift cards and merchandise,etc. to help us give more Veterans the gift of service dogs. Each $5 donation you make = 1 invite to our event which gives you a chance at gift cards/certificates from The Cheesecake Factory, Macaroni Grill, PF. Chang's, VA Runner and many more (no need to be present to win).

We will hold our drawing on November 8, 2014 at our fundraising event as well as an auction at 3pm at Harley Davidson of Quantico! Auction items at the dealership will include a memorabilia posters from The Kennedy Center, weekend stay at The Doubletree DC and many more.
