This is a different perspective as to how holidays relate with Armed Forces K-9 patrols, as well as K-9 Units in uniform throughout the U.S. These are highly trained teams. Both the handlers and the canines share great loyalty and an ardent zeal in serving others. K-9s were also used at the World Trade Center after September 11, 2001.

A gentleman named Gary is a retired member of the NYPD, and his partner was a K-9 who has now passed away.Gary was very proud of his K-9 partner, “Billy.” Billy was named after slain Police Officer Billy Gunn. Billy the K-9 had served at the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001. As a result, for awhile the dog’s feet had to be bandaged and was on an I.V.So many suffered. We will never forget — especially this Christmas season.
