Remembering a Soldier’s Best Friend – K-9 Military Veteran Laid to Rest


We ran across the story of Shaman, a K-9 military veteran, who was laid to rest at the Michigan War Dog Memorial recently and wanted to share.

According to the news report, “Shaman and his longtime handler, Army Staff Sgt. Dennis Asher of Howell, served together in Iraq. The German shepherd and Asher were stationed at the same high-security Iraqi prison where former dictator Saddam Hussein was held.”

This brave hero passed away on July 21 after battling spinal cord disease.  You can read the news story and watch a touching video clip of a pack howl salute to Shaman on the Detroit Free Press website.
