Providing comfort and resiliency one paw at a time Providing comfort and resiliency one paw at a time
Eielson Air Force Base has two furry friends that assist in different resiliency capacities. Tessa is Eielson’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program service dog and Belle is a therapy dog who visits different locations around the base. Through the combined efforts of these canine companions, the Icemen Team receives a welcome reprieve from their busy day, and if necessary, a friendly acquaintance to confide in. Each dog serves in a specific role to aid in raising morale throughout the Wing. In her short time at Eielson, Tessa has already helped several sexual assault victims come forward and receive assistance from the SAPR office; Belle visits with Airmen and their families at several different facilities each week, providing comfort and a break for each person who pets her.

Whether it’s a permanent change of station, general moving from one neighborhood to another, or large painstaking moves to entirely different parts of the globe, moving is almost always a challenge for anyone. For some Airmen, those challenges were faced long before their decision to serve. Senior Airman Michael Drinkwater’s experiences with moving began at a young age.
