PPH Holds First East Coast Graduation
Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Richard Simonsen receives his Service Dog Yoko from foster puppy parents John Porter and Beryl Fritz during the PPH Graduation Ceremony at Ft. Belvoir on March 9, 2012.
On Friday, March 9, Paws for Purple Hearts held its first East Coast Graduation Ceremony at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia where two Service Dogs, Niles and Yoko were placed with active duty Wounded Warriors and Nathan was placed as the Ft. Belvoir Community Hospital’s first Facility Dog! Our thanks to the wonderful staff and Command at the hospital for welcoming PPH to Ft. Belvoir for the first of what we hope will be many more graduations where we will place fully trained Service Dogs with American Wounded Warriors.
