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.
