Operation Dog Tag

Dedicated to all men and women who served in combat and their families who love them. Operation Dog Tag wishes to educate the community of their purpose and asks for help in aiding the returning veterans along with the ones that are already struggling at home.

And we veterans thank you as we continue “Making Man’s Best Friend Even Better For A Veteran”­­­ - Joe Scheffer, Director

I, specialist Donald Sohler (US Army), was shot 7 times in Iraq on December 26, 2007. I struggle with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) as well as many physical challenges. I got a Basset Hound and named him Huck. I feel I can talk to him about anything and he won't judge me.

After Iraq I became hyper vigilant. Huck is an extra set of eyes and ears for me. Around Huck I feel safe;  I am currently training Huck with Operation Dog Tag, and I am excited he will be able to help me with the everyday task I currently struggle with.

Operation Dog Tag is a non-profit organization dedicated to training dogs for combat Veterans. Then in turn, training those Vets to train other dogs for other Vets. Having a dog has been proven to help with rehabilitation & many Veterans in our area are in desperate need. The Veterans are given these dogs at no cost.
So please help us help our Veterans by donating to: Pointman Int’l Ministries (DBA Operation Dog Tag),
