Honoring K-9 Veterans

Each Memorial Day, the Special Operations Forces (SOF) K9 Memorial Committee and the Airborne & Special Operations Museum (ASOM) hold a K9 Memorial Ceremony near “Constant Vigilance”, the world’s first memorial to SOF K9s killed in the line of duty. The 2016 ceremony will be held on Monday, May 30th at 12 noon on the grounds of the ASOM in Fayetteville. 

 “Constant Vigilance,” which was dedicated in July of 2013, honors canines from around the world. Surrounding stones have the dog’s birth and date killed in action. The plaque reads the Bond Between a SOF handler and his K9 is eternal. Trusting each other is a nameless language. Here we honor the SOF K9s that have paid the ultimate price.
