Default Seal's Loyal Retriever

This is not my image, but since I am a combat wounded veteran, I felt the need to share this. It is both inspiring and heart-breaking. If this is inappropriate, please remove.

Loyal Labrador retriever Hawkeye refused to leave the side of his master, Petty Officer Jon Tumilson, even in death.
More than 1,000 people turned up to honour Mr Tumilson in his hometown of Rockford, Iowa, after he was one of 38 killed when a rocket-propelled grenade took out a U.S. Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan earlier this month.

The picture was taken by Mr Tumilson’s cousin, Lisa Pembleton.

Yeah, great story and great photo. Sometimes the story the photo tells is so much more important than technical merit. Very heartbreaking.
