German shepherds, Labradors, and Belgian Mainois are some of the breeds helping support the troops in Iraq.  These 4 legged soldiers are enduring battlefield conditions while performing various duties such as bomb sniffing and never asking anything in return.

A NJ resident, Frank Yevchak started a group in support of canine soldier contributions called 4 Legged Soldiers.  He send a package to the 332nd Expedition Security Forces Group in Iraq every week for the dogs.  The package includes various items such as cooling vests, eye goggles, toys and kennel supplies.

The article we found in The Record states

“When you talk to the kennels or the kennel masters, if they need something, almost always they never ask for anything for themselves, they always ask for their dogs,” Yevchak said. “Their dogs are number one, their dogs come first. They deserve our undying gratitude.”

If you would like to make a donation:

Contact Yevchak at 973-768-9027 or 4leggedsoldiers@optonline.net.

Donations also can be mailed to Support Our 4 Legged Soldiers, P.O. Box 947, Hewitt, N.J. 07421.
