    interesting. I never thought of it. should they be recognized at Arlington??? in WW2 Rin Tin Tin was used to recruit dogs.

    This Memorial Day, despite the fact that a dog named Cairo helped Navy Seals bag Bin Laden; despite the fact that some 100,000 U.S. dogs served in World War One, World War Two and in Vietnam, no one will lay a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Canine.

    There's no such thing at Arlington. No statue. No plaque. No urn. No bush. No flame. No nothing to honor or acknowledge the sacrifice of veterans who, though they may have spun around three times before bedding down, were veterans none the less.

    story

    they have saved a lot of American lives.

    I can't be sure, but I believe that there are at least two national cemeteries dedicated to military canines in the Pacific. I think one is on Okinawa. They've been featured on the Military Channel.

    And I think that Arlington should open a special section for those who served above and beyond. They deserve it.
