Dana Wilson, Electronics Technician and former Navy ET, was Chairman of the Veteran’s Committee tasked with researching and recommending a charity for the AAMSI family to support. “After much research and discussion, the Veteran’s Committee selected K9s for Warriors. Our Committee felt that K9s for Warriors had one of the highest percentages of donations that actually go directly to the charity, and the deserving veteran gets a friend for life,” said Dana.

“AAMSI employees and Board members were all invited to donate. Next year we hope to open up the opportunity to give back to our military veterans to our suppliers as well. We hope this donation will help them continue the great work they do for our Military Heroes and rescue dogs. Thank you to everyone who donated!!” said Lyndsey Steele, committee finance member.
