The K-9 Cop Magazine published their most recent edition (August-November 2014) featuring an article about the recently unveiled Military Working Dog Teams Monument in JBSA-Lackland Texas. On this edition, the magazine article features three of my photographs in addition to the magazine cover. K-9 Cop Magazine is a bi-monthly publication with articles, updates and features on police, military and working dog topics. Check it out: K-9 Cop Magazine. The article highlights the first national monument dedicated to the United States Military Working Dog teams unveiled in a ceremony on October 28, 2013. The unveiling of this monument concludes years of hard work and dedication by John Burn, a Vietnam scout dog handler, to nationally recognize the dedication of military working dogs and their handlers.
Located in JBSA-Lackland AFB, the Military Working Dog Teams memorial is only blocks away from the Department of Defense Military Working Dog training grounds, the world’s largest training center for military dogs and their handlers. In addition, JBSA-Lackland AFB is host to the Military Working Dog Veterinary Service and the Holland Working Dog Hospital, the largest for military working dogs in the United States.
The monument is located on the southeast corner of the Air Force Basic Military Training parade grounds on JBSA-Lackland AFB and joins countless military aircraft displays and artifacts that commemorate our military history. The 802d Security Forces Squadron Commander has authorized public access to the national monument in accordance with Public Law 110-181, Section 2877.
