VFW Post 1156 has long been an ardent supporter of service dogs for disabled veterans. In early 2012, we learned about ECAD, which breeds, trains and places dogs for people with various disabilities. ECAD’s Project HEAL focuses on providing service dogs for physically and/or psychologically disabled veterans. ECAD visited the Post as part of our March 2012 monthly meeting, and the rest is history. The Post has donated over $10,000 to ECAD since then, and was instrumental in securing a large donation for them from St. John’s Church in Larchmont in Spring 2012.
