NY Knicks Surprise U.S. Army Veteran With Service Dog

November 10, 2016

Sgt. 1st Class Luciano Yulfo spent 36 years proudly serving his country in the U.S. Army. He is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom that served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Despite the sacrifices he made this noble veteran has been forced to wait over 18 months to receive a service dog to help him accomplish daily tasks and cope with PTSD.

When the New York Knicks and Paws of War heard his story they couldn’t allow themselves to sit idly by as a veteran received unfair treatment. They invided Yulfo to attend Wednesday nights’s game against the Brooklyn Nets. During an intermission they presented Yulfo with a brand new Knicks Jersey and a long-over due and well deserved service dog.

As you can tell by his reaction Yulfo was elated to be presented with the dog. Watch this heart warming moment for yourself below.
