New Jersey Falcons U14 & U16 teams partnered with the Skate it Forward Charity to raise money and collect chew toys for the US Military Working Dogs (MWD's) and their military veteran handlers that are currently serving overseas in hostile territories.
Military Working Dogs are trained to do a number of tasks none of which would be considered basic. Dogs are trained on base and within combat missions and are used for security, law and order, force protection, detecting insurgents, narcotics, landmines, IED's, firearms, ammunition, explosives and are also used in search and rescue. Many times our K9 friends are the first to enter a hazardous and life threatening situation.
