National K9 Veterans Day: honoring our four-legged warriors
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Carmen Pontello, 633rd Security Forces Squadron dog handler, and his dog Max, 633rd SFS military working dog, poses for a photo after participating in a ruck march in honor of National K9 Veterans Day at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, March 13, 2020. For Pontello, this year’s celebration means a lot more to him after his MWD, Max, passed away in November 2019 shortly after his retirement. He said he will be carrying Max’s ashes with him throughout the event. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Kaylee Dubois)
