Fraternal Order of Eagles of Massachusetts names Toka's Friends as benefitting charity

A chance encounter between Jim and Dee McCormack and Ian and Trish Forst and their service dog Lou has led to an incredible partnership between the Buzzards Bay Fraternal Order of Eagles and Toka's Friends.  As President of the state FOE, Jim chose Toka's Friends to be the benefitting charity for all Massachusetts aeries of the FOE.  We are incredibly grateful to Jim and Dee and the entire FOE organization for their generous support.

Toka's Friends Fall Pig Roast 2023

Despite wind swept rain, we managed to hold our annual Pig Roast on September 24th. We had over 60 supporters and veterans join us despite the weather. A good time was had by all!  Special thanks to Tom Camara for securing a tent for the event!!

Introducing Chester

Named for famed and highly decorated Navy Admiral Chester Nimitz, this cute little guy joined the pack in October of 2023.  Chester quickly picked up on basic obedience with Toka, Drew, Murph and Jesse showing him the ropes.

Introducing Jesse

We are honored to name one of our puppies to a true American hero who is near and dear to our hearts. Ensign Jesse Brown was one of the first African American Naval officers and pilots. He lost his life in Korea while providing air support to American troops trapped near the Chosin Reservoir. Posthumously awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, Ensign Brown is the main figure in the recently released movie, Devotion.  In June of 2023, we added this happy and intelligent little guy to the team.  He will always be a reminder to us of the legacy of Jesse Brown.

Introducing Murph

This sweet and friendly little guy is named in honor of Lt. Michael P. Murphy ("Murph"), a Navy SEAL who received the Medal of Honor posthumously in 2007.  Lt. Murphy was cited "For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life and above and beyond the call of duty as the leader of a special reconnaissance element with Naval Special Warfare task unit Afghanistan on 27 and 28 June 2005." Murph joined the team in March of 2023 and is already showing signs of being a service dog worthy of his namesake.
