My name is SSgt John Makripodis. I am from Seymour-Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina. My MWD Carlos (F337) was euthanized today due to cancer.

He prevented the loss of life many times. He was a true hero. MWD Carlos changed 6 handlers' lives in the past eleven years and he will never be forgotten.
