On Tuesday, November 5, LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Brutus (LCC Squad) and Nigel (LCC Staff) had the great honor of attending the funeral service for Robert Chan. Robert fought in World War II in Burma and received the Good Conduct Medal, American Theater Service Medal, and the Asiatic Pacific Theater Medal.
Robert was a strong patriot and an active member of the Chinatown American Legion Post 1003, having served as past commander and chaplain. A great lover of dogs, 98-year-old Robert would have been thrilled knowing that the Kare 9s attended his funeral.
The Kare 9 Military Ministry met Robert’s son Gary, and his wife Lisa at the Honor Flight Chicago in September and October.
