The 7th June Ceremony for National Military Working Dog Day was once again held at the Military and Service Dog National Monument, Wacol, Qld. Due to the inclement weather the Ceremony was held indoors but this did not deter a large representation of both serving personnel as well as past members of the Defence Force. Military Working Dogs from the Army (Engineers & Military Police) as well as the RAAF provided support and were well received by all.
The Ceremony included the dedication of plaques that denote our Roll of Honour.
