This week, ESA staff members traveled to Cooper, Texas to visit the headquarters of this year's ESA Gives Back charity of choice, the Warrior Dog Foundation. ESA Executive Director Merlin Guilbeau and ESA Vice President of Sales and Marketing Shannon Murphy presented a check to Mike Ritland, former Navy SEAL and founder of the Warrior Dog Foundation, on behalf of the association. The check, which totaled $13,617, was a result of donations made during the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) in Nashville last June.

The Warrior Dog Foundation is dedicated to serving the special operations community, families, and Special Operation Forces (SOF) working K-9 military dogs. The K-9s employed with these forces are of the top tier in the working-dog world. They are expected to work in the most austere of environments and face conditions that most human beings cannot survive. These are the environments in which these elite warriors operate.  The K-9 units are vital in ensuring the success of every mission and operate in all conditions.
