The American Warrior Initiative gives back.
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Some people say dogs are man’s best friend. Well, others know, they can even save a life.
The American Warrior Initiative, a non-profit of the Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, believes in giving back to Veterans.
On Friday, the warrior initiative held a dinner and will surprise 5 Veterans with 5 service dogs.
“Service dogs save lives; tonight, is a life saving mission. We’re going to raise money, were going to give away these dogs, and put them in the hands, hearts, and lives of service members, “ said Louise Thaxton, Director of the American Warrior Initiative.
Fairway Mortgage puts on a program and provides educational benefits to warriors through the American Warrior Initiative. All proceeds raised by the American Warrior Initiative go directly to Veterans, Active-Duty Members and First-Responders.
“The American Warrior Initiative is a group of people who trie to find needs in the community for our Military Veterans and fill that need and so we’re here tonight to celebrate that,” said Mayor Patrick Collins.
The American warrior initiative serves the people who serve us.
“I think sometimes we take our country for granted. We take our freedoms for granted, and thats what i’m hoping people will walk away with. One to understand the sacrifice that went into having what we have. Two, I think that part that we all played to understand what it is to be an american regardless of your politics or any of your beliefs.”
