Military dogs honored with monument in San Antonio

I thought we were broke.


SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Some four-footed military heroes will be honored at a South Texas installation where many of the animals are trained.

Dedication ceremonies are scheduled Monday at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland for the first national monument honoring war dogs that died in service to America.  

The U.S. Military Working Dog Teams National Monument will be at the same base where the animals are also treated when wounded.

The main granite pedestal features the bronze image of a handler and the U.S. military’s four main working dog breeds — a Doberman, a German shepherd, a Labrador retriever and a Belgian Malinois (MAL’-ihn-wah).
