Service Dog Dexi
25 Janurary 2020
On Saturday, January 25th during the annual David Sonka Memorial Poker Tournament another Service Dog Team was matched up. This team was sponsored by the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Front Range Chapter CO 3-6.
Our newest recipient is Jason "Tito" Martinez who served as a Military Working Dog Handler in the United States Marine Corps from August 2001 until August 2005. He was stationed at Marine Corps Logistics Base, Barstow California and deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from May 2004 until November 2004. He was attached to United States Army units 1/32 and 1/34 and the Marines 24th MEU. Jason is also a husband and father.
In the years after his service, he has joined the CVMA and continues his service by helping other veterans. Jason has carried the burdens of his military service as he has been serving other veterans. Now it is his turn to receive a new battle buddy.
Jason was introduced to Dexi, a 6-month-old Chocolate Lab that hails from the state of Texas. She was screened and will be trained by one of our trainers, Tara, and shows incredible promise! The name Dexi is a combination of Fallen United States Marine Dog Handler Corporal David Sonka and his Military Working Dog Flex. She and Jason will certainly bring honor to the memory of our fallen Brother!
We will update you with training progress and share in watching this new team come
