National K9 Military Dog Day – 13 March
This National K9 Veterans Day is set aside to honor and commemorate the service and
sacrifices of American military and working dogs throughout history. It was on March 13,
1942, that the Army began training for its new War Dog Program, also known as the "K-9

The U.S. Postal Service will recognize these honorable members of the military with
stamps this year. There will be one stamp each for the German shepherd, Labrador
retriever, Belgian Malinois and Dutch shepherd breeds, which are all types of military
