The Department of New Jersey, Marine Corps League has become a proud supporter of K9s For Warriors. Our goal is to provide ongoing sponsorship to Marines with PTSD, TBI and/or Military Sexual trauma as a result of Post 9/11 military service.
Our Committee includes myself as the Chairman, Barb DeAngelo Adjutant Department of NJ, John Cleary District 3 Vice Commandant, Michael Waluk District 1 Vice Commandant and Michael Aprecina, Paymaster for the LCpl Jebh Barker Detachment.
Each Detachment within the Department has the opportunity to help with our cause. The cost to pair a veteran and a service dog is $20,000.00 from start to finish. This includes a 3-week in-house program, which provides each Marine with more than 120 hours of hands-on training with professional canine trainers and warrior trainers at the K9s For Warriors facility in Florida.
This is going to be a long term program, so that we may impact as many Marines that we possibly can.
If each Detachment donated as little as $600.00 per year, the Department would be able to pair a Marine with a service dog every year.
Donations can be made out to the Department of NJ, in the memo section please put Warrior fund. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for address information or direct donations can be made at

If you would like me to speak to your Detachment about this new fund please let me know and I will come to any of your meetings.
Attached is a flyer that you can print out and distribute or you can use during your rose program campaign. The Rose Program can fund this cause, Direct veteran assistance.
As always thank you for all your support.
