The memorial’s latest addition, the War Dog Memorial, was dedicated during the program, and the first Australian war dog’s handler, retired U.S. Army Corporal William “Bill” Wynne, gave the keynote address.
The day started at 10:30 a.m. with dedications at the War Dog Memorial, where the five war dog statues were donned with a medal of honor for their heroic service. The four-legged heroes were all original in their breeds, the wars in which they served and in their missions.
