Semper Fi. A memorial statue honoring the working dogs of 9.11.01

Today I attended the 9/11 Working Dog Recognition Ceremony at Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ  (across from Lower Manhattan).  Finding One Another honored canine working dog teams on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  They identified more than 950 working dog teams (civilian, government, law enforcement and military) who served in response to the attacks of 9/11. These teams were involved with search and rescue, recovery and security efforts at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, Shanksville and the Fresh Kills Landfill recovery site.

Today, they were honored.   I share some of the pictures I took at this ceremony.
