two legged members aren't the only ones who deserve recognition.
We are quite proud of one of our K-9 members. Mittru (handler Chris Buff). Mittru worked 911 and put closure to several families. Mittru has his own page in a book that was published for all our brave friends, Dog Heroes of September 11th.
On November 19, 2011 Mittru crossed over the Rainbow Bridge to wait for Chris to join him.
Mittru touched many lives and will be remembered for all the good that he has done and the faces he has kissed.
Rest well dear friend.

We are very proud to have had Mittru chosen to be part of a 4 stamp USPS series called Dogs at Work that was issued on Janurary 20, 2012.
