The United States K9 Corps was started on March 13th 1942, and there is an effort to make this national K9 Veterans Day. And although it is not recognized nationally Michigan and a few other states has declared March 13th K9 Veterans Day to honor all dogs that have served in the military, police and civilian search and rescue.
The Michigan War Dog Memorial and Cemetery is in South Lyon, on Milford and 11 Mile Road. It is a beautiful memorial and final resting place for the dogs of Michigan that have served our country and state so faithfully.
Thank You to all the handlers trainers and dogs that have served so loyally
