Milwaukee County War Memorial

Students Visit WMC

A group of 8th graders from Maple Dale Elementary School in Fox Point, WI, visited the War Memorial Center on April 12 for a War Dogs presentation.

Vietnam veteran Jerry Witt, five handlers and five dogs with War Dogs Milwaukee talked about the breeds that are best suited to serve in combat and on military surveillance teams. Jerry also talked about the two dogs he served with in Vietnam, the first of which died after undergoing surgery after accidentally tripping a bomb.
