Warriors of the North pay final respects to AirMAN’s best friend

Staff Sgt. Melissa Orozco, 319th Security Forces Squadron Military Working Dog handler, wipes away tears as she speaks about why she enjoyed being MWD Aron’s handler during a memorial service in honor of the Air Force canine held May 15, 2014, at the Prairie Rose Chapel on Grand Forks Air Force Base, N.D. The MWD was humanely euthanized on May 7, 2014, after it was discovered he was dying of cancer. Orozco described the four-legged companion as 80 pounds of love and affection.
