A dog mourns and says goodbye to his owner, a soldier killed in action.

The remains of Petty Officer Jon Tumilson lie in state in his hometown of Rockford, Iowa.  His dog, Hawkeye, was led to his casket to say goodbye.

Thirty-five year old Tumilson died on August 6th when a rocket-propelled grenade downed a helicopter, killing 30 Americans and eight Afghans.

The picture speaks for itself.
