During his second tour as a US Army infantryman in the Vietnam War, John Burnam became a scout-dog handler. On combat missions, he learned of the dogs amazing ability to find enemy caches of ammunition and supplies, hidden base camps, and concealed tunnel entrances; saving countless lives by enabling American troops to avoid booby traps and ambushes. After retirement from the military, he became passionate about the idea of a national monument to honor them. Thanks to his efforts, the U.S. Military Working Dog Teams National Monument has been built at Lackland Air Force Base, where all of America's military dog teams are trained.--Publisher.
