Arko, a 6-year old military working dog, who had deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kuwait with the 88th Security Forces Squadron out of Wright Patterson Air Force Base, will be remembered Friday with a special service.

The German Shepherd was a patrol and explosive detector dog with deployments that included Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom.

After a sudden illness, he was laid to rest February 16, 2014 in the Wright-Patterson AFB kennel.
