Nationally renowned and locally based K9s for Warriors is making more headlines.

This time, Jacksonville's First Coast News is launching a new community project called "Operation Orion" in an effort to raise awareness and funds to operate the future Nocatee facility (will accomodate four times as many veterans and reduce the current year-long waiting list of heroes seeking help). Both the land and construction have been donated, and a ceremonial ground-breaking will happen next month.
