"Leatherman Supports America's Four-Legged Troops"

With encouragement from the "Old Dawgs" in the Thailand Dog Handlers, the Leatherman Tool Group of Portland, Oregon, has just donated a bunch of the company's heavy-duty Leatherman Surge multi-tools to our "Pups," K-9 handlers at Ali Air Base, Kirkuk Air Base, and Forward Operating Base Warrior in Iraq. The Old Dawgs suggested the Surge for this donation because it's big and extremely rugged; it's a 4.5" multi-tool with more than 20 useful features including two locking knife blades that can be opened with one hand (perfect for use when your other hand is leashed to a big dog). The Surge's other features include several screwdrivers, wire cutters, pliers, a saw, files, and scissors.

The tools were delivered to Iraq in mid-February, and the handlers are very pleased with the gifts. They've told us how they might use the tools, as well as how much they appreciate the support from home.

Thank you for your interest in helping out the Military Working Dogs and their handlers in Iraq. We are hopeful that the generosity of the Leatherman Tool Group will inspire others to join our members in providing cash and material donations, as well as morale boosting support, for this often-ignored but vitally important segment of our Nation's military front lines.

For specific information on donations, please contact:
