We honour our troops and veterans on Memorial Day, Monday 28 May 2018. The photograph shows US Army Staff Sergeant Agnieszka Sosnowska of the 131st Military working Dog Detachment. She is praising Military Working Dog Quaid, who has just completed the training program in explosive detection.
The use of dogs in warfare dates to ancient times. The US K-9 Corps was created on 13 March 1942.
