The Marywood University Student Veteran Alliance recently hosted its second annual Operation: Tails for Troops at the Abington Dog Park. Proceeds from the event were used to sponsor four service dogs for military veterans from Paws and Stripes, which provides service dogs for military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. The event included demonstrations, raffles and the K-9s and Crowns dog pageant.
