This week marks one year Injured Officer Bernie Domagala has been back in the Chicago area; it also marks one year of visits to him from Officer Steve Martinez and his K9, Pantera, and Officer Marion Anderson and her K9, Molly. Bernie (and the entire Domagala family) enjoy the K9 Unit’s visits and Officer Martinez continues to call the family to schedule regular visits.
This year, on Christmas Day, Officers Martinez and Anderson came with the dogs, cameras, lighting effects, and a backdrop and took pictures of our family, and also that of any other resident and family member who wanted a photo. They also made arrangements for the CPD Pipes and Drums to visit! The officers had Bernie’s favorite pizza dinner with him, and of course they did a K9 demonstration. It was a Christmas afternoon they will always remember.
Thanks so much to these very special officers of the K9 Unit, to Pantera and Molly, and to all who helped show Bernie Domagala and his family that we will NEVER FORGET his sacrifice and that we will always honor him as the hero that he truly is!
