Canine care packages: Dog lovers send goodies to military working dogs


Multi-National Division – North PAO
By Master Sgt. Tim Volkert, 3d ACR Public Affairs Office

MOSUL, Iraq – Mail call around Forward Operating Base Marez in Iraq has been going to the dogs recently.
    A group of dog lovers from the Gem City Dog Club in Dayton, Ohio have been conducting fund raisers and purchasing dog toys, cooling vests and variety of other amenities for military working dogs serving in Iraq.
    Starline Nunley of Springfield, Ohio, told her son she wanted send care packages for him and the Soldiers he works with to help them deal with the heat of summer and life away from home. Her son, Maj. Parker Frawley, the planning officer for the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, could not think of anything he or the Soldiers he works with really needed. After talking with his mom, the conversation turned to dogs and the idea was born to help the working dogs serving in Iraq.
    Frawley said his mom’s dog club loved the idea to support the working dogs and immediately began raising money to buy all the working dogs at FOB Marez cooling vests and other items to help them cope with the severe heat they will face.

    it might not be a taboo subject but generally folks don't speak about such issues.
