EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE  — The Northwest Florida Regional Airport is opening a dog park that will serve passengers’ pets and working animals including law enforcement K-9 units, therapy dogs and dogs that assist their Americans with Disabilities Act wards.

“We see a lot more wounded veterans who rely on service dogs at our airport, and this sends a clear message that we care about them, while providing a great service to all travelers,” County Commissioner Kelly Windes said.
