Here in Wisconsin, the Sons of The American Legion has led the effort to give GI Josh Dogs to Wisconsin kids who have a parent deploying far from home.Through Spring of 2017 we have given away more than 800 GI Josh Dogs at a cost of more than $20,000. Unfortunately, there are still more deployments occurring, which means we need to continue to raise funds to support this impactful program. Please consider a donation by downloading our Donation Form and indicating the funds for GI Josh Dog.Learn more at www.wisal.org/josh-dogs/.
