Slain Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson's dog "Hawkeye" lies next to his casket during funeral services in Rockford, Iowa. Tumilson was one of 30 American soldiers killed in Afghanistan on August 6 when their helicopter was shot down during a mission to help fellow troops who had come under fire.
The one absolute, unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world — the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous — is his dog. Senator George Graham Vest (photo of Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson and his dog Hawkeye)
every picture like this inspires me. Soldiers have strength like no other. I can't even imagine how they feel, and how they feel at this very moment seeing their loved one for the first time in a long time. God Bless our troops♥
Hawkeye the Labrador retriever is proof that dogs, too, suffer from heartbreak. During Navy SEAL John Tumilson’s funeral on Aug. 19, Hawkeye ambled up to his owner’s coffin and dropped to the ground with a heaving sigh. Tumilson’s cousin, Lisa Pembleton, snapped this photo of the devoted dog and posted it on her Facebook page, and the heartbreaking photo was soon shared around the world.
Lt. Michael Patrick Murphy ~ Navy Seal ~ Medal of Honor. I took this picture of Murphy's memorial a while back. When i was editing the image i found that the high contrast black and white felt more fitting. It really is a beautiful memorial.
