This memorial and educational center will be centered around a custom bronze sculpture of a US Serviceman and his K9 by Lena Toritch dubbed “Going Home”. This amazing centerpiece will be surrounded by dedicated custom engraved bricks for the memorialized canines. The centerpiece will face Westward into the setting sun behind the picturesque landscape to encompass the true feeling of “Going Home”. There will be benches to rest upon as well as a covered shaded area which will be used for visitors to sit and have a moment to reflect. This will be a place where young and old alike can and will learn of what these dogs and handlers did and how paramount their service is to the security of not only our country, but the entire world.
The memorial will be available to all who wish to visit, including any educational facility who wishes to learn about and pay respects to our fallen four legged heroes.
