Military Monday

Memorial: A Different Kind of Hero

Today's story is about Keve, a military working dog that recently died during a routine surgery. Keve is a two-time Iraq war veteran that carried out 32 missions in support of the Marine Corps. She found countless weapons caches and improvised explosive devices and saved many lives.

Military working dogs can detect narcotics or explosives, help during patrols and vehicle inspections, and support the United States secret service with presidential missions.

These animals help keep the morale of the Marines high and usually work for an average of 10 years. “She did her job very proficiently and kept the moral of the Marines high,” said Cpl. Richard Bock, a military working dog handler with security battalion.

RIP Keve. Thank you for your service. Semper Fi.
