Ret. USMC Sergeant Montoya, Veterans Program Director

Sergeant Montoya is a ten year Marine Corps combat veteran.  He served in the infantry in Operation Noble Eagle, Operation Enduring Freedom, and during the invasion Operation Iraqi Freedom, for which he received the Navy Cross for valor.  The Navy Cross is the second highest military award in the nation.  His passion for animals began with training horses in the early 2000s.  

Sergeant Montoya is an active board member of 22 Until None.  He has spent much of the last decade volunteering for various service dog organizations and veterans charities, as well as providing hands on obedience and service dog training.  He is a certified instructor trainer and a service dog handler.  He has had the good fortune of working with great mentors in the service dog community where he honed his craft.  Sergeant Montoya is committed to giving back to veterans the greatest partnership of all.

Pairing a veteran with their future service dog is challenging.  The growth and the partnership flowers into something few understand until they've held the other end of the leash, but Sergeant Montoya knows first hand the difference a service dog can make.  In his role as Veterans Program Director he strives to be the best advocate for his fellow veterans.  He hopes to provide the building blocks they need to move forward with the next chapter of their life.  One of Sergeant Montoya's favorite sayings is, "If you ever say you are broken, your canine partner is the only one who will never believe you."
