In the news: Memorial Day 2020

Military Working Dog, Daga

We honour our troops and veterans on Memorial Day, Monday 25 May 2020.

The photograph to the left shows working dog Army K-9 officer Daga, a Belgian Malinois. Daga is a memberĀ  of the 793rd Military Police Battalion—a unit that saw almost seventy-two years of consecutive service, including service overseas in Europe during World War II.

During World War I, the Belgians used their Bouviers des Flandres to haul machine guns to the front. In World War II, dogs were used to warn of ambushes and to detect arms caches.
