The Council City of New York
The Council of the City of New York is pleased and proud
to honor Anthony Jerone for his outstanding contributions to
the City of New York; and

Today we are immensely proud to honor Anthony Jerone,
one of our country's preeminent professional dog trainers
and a man whose contributions to our City and nation have
been  particularly distinguished; and

Anthony Jerone began his career in 1968 after entering the
military. At the Army's Dog Training School in Fort Benning,
Georgia  Mr. Jerone learned how to evaluate, train and
handle scout dogs in obedience, agility and scent
discrimination;  and

Anthony Jerone then became a United States Army
Infantryman, scout dog and tunnel handler, and was sent to Vietnam for         View              
11 months where he and his special dogs saved numerous lives.
Mr Jerone was so successful in training and handling these specials canines that one of              
his dogs was even promoted to Corporal for his outstanding find of a Vietnamese who was on     
the U.S. Military's Top Ten Wanted List; and

For his distinguished service as a Vietnam K-9 Corp. Specialist, Anthony Jerone was                   
honored with the Army Commendation Medal, the Bronze Star, the Conspicuous                          
Achievement Medal, the Presidential unit Citation, and the Vietnam Civic Actions                          
Medal; and

Anthony Jerone is also the founder of the K-9 Corp. for the NYC Transit Authority police.             
This program, which he implemented in 1980, enables police officers to have highly                     
trained canine partners; it has not only saved the lives of police officers but it has also                
made our City streets safer by increasing the apprehension of criminals; and

The loyalty, diligence and devotion to our country that Anthony Jerone displayed as a                 
soldier  are the same qualities that have helped him achieve such great success in his               
personal and   professional life. He is a true credit to all the brave men and women who              
have been fortunate  enough to serve our country, and it is with the deepest gratitide of             
his legislative body that we honor him today; now, therfore be it known:

That the Council of the City of New York commends ANTHONY JERONE for his                            
extraordinary service to our City and Nation.
