MWDT National Monument Recognized on House Floor
On October 26, 2023 the honorable Congressman Chip Roy recognized the Military Working Dog Teams National Monument on the House floor to commemorate the monument’s 10th anniversary.
Congressman Roy shares, “Mr. Speaker, I rise today to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Military Working Dog Teams National Monument located at Joint Base San Antonio—Lackland.
For the past ten years, the Military Working Dog Teams National Monument has served as a physical symbol of the loyal service and unconditional sacrifice that military working dogs have made alongside our men and women in uniform since WWII.
It is a privilege and an honor to celebrate the anniversary of the Military Working Dog Teams National Monument. I hope this record serves as an acknowledgment of the immeasurable debt of gratitude owed to both soldiers and K–9s by the American people. On behalf of Texas’ 21st Congressional District, I ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing the extraordinary sacrifice of these individuals and animals.”
