Let's not forget the dogs who died in service to us on the Memorial Day
Unveiled June 10, 2006
Sculptor - Bruce Lindsay
The United States War Dog Memorial was unveiled on the grounds of the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Holmdel on June 10, 2006. The life-size bronze statue was created by Bruce Lindsay which cost $100,000 and depicts a soldier in Army fatigues kneeling besides his German Shepherd. The effort for the sculpture was nearly seven years in the making and was led by the nonprofit U.S. War Dogs Association. The sculpture recognizes the role of dogs in American warfare and honors dogs in Vietnam, World War II, Korea and all the skirmishes in between.
