Godspeed, to a hero. With a bugler playing “Taps,” a bagpiper playing “Amazing Grace” and the firing of a 21-gun salute, the 10-year-old German shepherd was memorialized with full military honors, less than two weeks after he was put down because of old age and ailments.
March 13, 1942 is the official birthday of the United States K9 Corps. We honor not only those in the K9 Corps, but also SAR Dogs, Police K9s, Customs K9s, Border Patrol K9s, Airport Police K9s and other working dogs that protect us every day. They serve to save and they deserve to be honored, recognized and remembered- ♥
