BMWNEF President’s Letter

I would like to take this opportunity to give recognition and our sincere gratitude to Philos Enterprises, Inc for their generous donation ($20,000) to K9 For Warriors. Making the donation on behalf of Philos Enterprises, Inc. was James Quinn and receiving on behalf of K9 For Warriors was Riding Into History chairman Bill Peterson. These wonderful organizations go to great lengths to help our service members. It is through their hard work, support and donations to the K9 For Warriors program that many service members are able to get the help, support and training they need. I want to thank each and every member of these wonderful organizations, including our own BMWNEF members, for making life easier for these service members. God Bless each and everyone of you, and all our service members.
