New Park Honors Fallen Military Working Dog
On Thursday, base officials dedicate a park in memory of a fallen working dog who helped protect presidents and served five foreign tours of duty. Uran, a military working dog who died in a training accident last year, is being remembered with a dog park named in his honor. The new park is situated near a large green space, and close to base housing. Arlo Taylor, 19th Airlift Wing public affairs, says the park is a direct result of input from base residents, who wanted a place where they could enjoy the outdoors with their pets.
Taylor, Uran was in high demand as a military dog. He was deployed
as part of Secret Service details supporting missions for President
Barack Obama, President George Bush, Vice Presidents Joe Biden and
Dick Cheney and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. In addition,
Uran served overseas in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and
Enduring Freedom. Uran also served central Arkansas by answering
calls from local police departments in Bryant, Jacksonville, Conway
and Lonoke County.
