Today is the 9/11 anniversary. It is a day we honor those we lost and those that fought so bravely to save lives. It was one of those days we all remember where we were when we first heard about what was happening. I was in Marine Corps boot camp. I had just arrived to boot camp one month earlier. Little did I know what was about to happen and where that path was going to lead me. Several years later, one tour of duty with my dog completed, several friends KIA, and a whole new outlook and appreciation of life later I am proud to have served my country and honor those who lost their lives that day.
9/11 changed our world. It also skyrocketed the demand for working dog teams. Never before has there been such a high demand for search and rescue dogs, detection dogs, etc. Even to this day dog teams continue to be on the frontlines all around the world and here at home protecting our freedom. These videos are dedicated to our canine heroes of 9/11. Thank you to all those who put these together.
