Dogs may be man's best friends--especially in times of war. Military Working Dogs are a vital component of armed forces operations and have been throughout history. Now, The U.S. Military Working Dog Teams National Monument will honor every dog that has served in combat since World War II. An act of Congress has approved the memorial, the funding's been secured, and the sculptures are nearly complete; the memorial is expected to be completed in California in two months. As FoxNews.com reports, some cities, cemeteries and military bases across the country already have such memorials. But none has been elevated to national monument level, where it will be in the company of the Statue of Liberty, Yosemite National Park and Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
