Hey there, I am one of the Navy K-9 Dog handlers up in Mosul Iraq at FOB Diamondback.  Myself and the others would like to say thank you for all that you have done.  We just received the packages that you send us, everything was perfect, exactly what we needed and everything got and will be put to good use.  This is my second deployment in Iraq as a dog handler and even the last time I was out here, we received stuff from you guys that makes our deployment a little smoother.  We all appreciate everything and just wanted to say thanks for the support.  I will try and e-mail you a few pictures of us and our dog if you like, an the next week.  Thank again for everything, Happy Holidays and God bless.

Hi Ron,

    Just got back from a long week of convoy ops (whew). I just wanted to let ya know that we received the rest of the care packages that you and your friends sent.

    Ya know....never in a million years would I have thought that there were people out there like you guys that really cared to do as much as you've done for us. I, and the other handlers, are just floored. We don't know what to say. When we came in this morning and saw there were more packages from U.S Wardogs, we were in shock. We just looked at each other and said, "Holy ****!"

    I guess the only thing I can say is thank you again, and God bless all of you for making our lives (and the mutts) more bearable here. We will never forget you!

    I'm spending the rest of the afternoon thanking all the others also.

Thanks again Ron, talk soon.

Thank you for all the support you have been providing the US Military and Military Working Dogs.  The US War Dogs Association has helped out in my past 2 donations and you helped recognize a handler friend of mine at Hickam AFB who was injured in Iraq. The K-9 team’s here at Manas AB, Kyrgyzstan are very much appreciative of all your donations. 


Is there possibly anything we can send you from here as a token of our appreciation?  


Thanks again for all your support and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas.

Hello All,


Me and Louis would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Please eat lots of turkey for us.  Unfortunately, we did not get to gobble on some turkey.  We really appreciate all the support you have given us.  It means alot.  We heard that our relief is coming and we have about 2 wks left. :)  Well time to go back to work.  Happy Thanksgiving again.


Gerald and Louis




That’s good! Hope you have a good Thanks Giving!! Take care and keep up the great work

SSG Jonathan Walsh.



Thank you. It is kind of funny. I read your E-mail this morning then my mail clerk handler came back with the mail and your box was in the mix.  I guess it only took 4 days to get here.  I really appreciate everything. I think it will take longer to distribute them from here to my farthest teams, than it did to get here from the states. 

Thank you again for everything.

Scott Parrish, US Army
