A dog named Yeager, who is an explosive detection dog in Afghanistan, lies next to Staff Sgt. Derick Clark (kennel supervisor) and Chief Warrant Officer II Michael Reeves (kennel officer in charge) while observing a moment of silence in honor of Lance Cpl. Abraham Tarwoe (who was a dog handler and mortarman). This memorial service was held on April 22, 2012. Yesterday was Memorial Day, and hopefully we all took a moment in thought, of what sacrifices our U.S. Military (either human or canine) have given for all U.S. Citizens to live free and without fear on our soils.
