WAR DOG MEMORIAL DEDICATED DURING 2016 AVM REMEMBRANCE DAY

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.
