In his book "The Foreign Burial of American War Dead," Chris Dickon relates the story of World War II military dogs who fought bravely, significantly contributing to securing the island of Guam and saving many soldiers' lives. After being buried on the island in a special cemetery, the graves fell into disrepair and were forgotten until veterinarian William Putney, one of the veterinarians who originally buried the dogs, initiated a new burial site for them at The National War Dog Cemetery at the U.S. Naval Base at Orote Point.
