Mobile in Mobile County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
An Unheralded Breed of Soldier
Let us not forget these unsung heroes are soldiers, too. These valiant dogs protect our military men and women through countless perils, give comfort in uncertainty, and share the suffering and the risks in time of war. Over the decades, many of these dogs have made the supreme sacrifice giving their own lives to shield our armed forces and military assets from hostile acts.
Canines in the armed services continue that noble tradition around the world today.
This monument is dedicated by the patriotic people of Alabama for all to bear witness in remembrance to those faithful dogs and their Alabama handlers. Those who leave this place should remember the deeds and sacrifices of these four-legged soldiers. Furthermore, see in every dog the unconditional loyalty inherent in war dogs and glimpse a reflection of their soldier-brothers' heroic actions.
These teams unhesitatingly fight for right and for our nation's freedoms. Lest we forget, we should
