Chattanooga, TN – In a heartfelt tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the Fallen Five, our K9 unit is proud to announce the addition of two new recruits to our roster. These courageous canines, currently bearing temporary names, will soon be bestowed with the names or nicknames of the heroes who lost their lives during the tragic events of July 16, 2015, at the Chattanooga US Navy Operational Support Center.

The decision to honor the Fallen Five in this manner reflects our unwavering commitment to never forget the sacrifices made by these individuals in service to their country. By renaming our K9 companions after these heroes, we ensure that their legacies continue to live on, not only in our memories but also in the daily operations of our unit.

Each of the Fallen Five will be remembered through the noble traits and qualities embodied by our K9 partners. From courage and loyalty to determination and resilience, these canine comrades will serve as living tributes to the selflessness and valor displayed by those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

As our new recruits undergo training and prepare to join our ranks, we invite the community to join us in honoring the memory of the Fallen Five. Their names will serve as a constant reminder of the bravery and dedication exemplified by all who wear the uniform, both human and canine alike.

In the coming weeks, we will unveil the chosen names for our K9 recruits, ensuring that each one reflects the spirit and legacy of the hero for whom they are named. Through this act of remembrance, we pay tribute to those who gave their lives in service to their country and reaffirm our commitment to never forget their sacrifice.

Join us as we honor the Fallen Five and welcome our new K9 recruits into the fold. Together, we will continue to uphold their legacy and ensure that their memory lives on in the hearts and minds of all who serve.
