Memorial Day weekend is here once again. Instead of doing another post about armed service dogs I've decided to write about Ape, a rookie FBI dog who recently died in the line of duty. Ape was a 2 year old Czech German Shepherd working with the FBI and New York State police to flush out a gunman responsible for murdering four people. As the first man through the door, Ape was mortally wounded but his sacrifice allowed his fellow officers to kill the gunman before others were murdered.

A reminder to us all. No matter whether an animal serves with the armed forces, the FBI or state and local police, Memorial Day is a day to remember and honor all who died in service to the American people.
