Military Wife Helps Raise Funds for ‘Dog Park’ Renovation at West Point
Leigh Hansbarger, whose husband Col. Tom Hansbarger is director of cadet activities at West Point, suffered the loss of her dog Stella, a Jack Russell, while on vacation.
Coming back to West Point, after her loss, she would pass the area that was used as a place to exercise dogs of academy families and would think of her Stella.
Leigh Hansbarger said that the area wasn’t really an official dog park; it was just a place that the milltary community used to play with and exercise their dogs.
She said that Stella loved the dog park.
