Bak's Legacy

Dogs have been officially serving as four-legged soldiers in the United States military since World War I. Known as military working dogs (MWDs), they stand side-by-side with our servicemen and servicewomen and are more than just their companions – they are their protectors and actively contribute to U.S. combat operations. In ​fact, according to the American Humane Association, each MWD saves between 150-200 lives.


Unfortunately, when these four legged heroes retire, medical care is not provide any longer.     MWD “SSgt. BAK”s K146 PNDD  legacy is to ensure that every MWD and CWD receives financial assistance as they wage battle   against cancer and other life threatening conditions.  These Hero Dogs deserve only the very best in medical care.

 MWD “SSgt. BAK” K146 PNDD

June 22, 2004 - February 4, 2016


Bak was born in Germany on June 22, 2004.  When he was 17 months old, Bak traveled to the MWD Training facility at Lackland AFB located in San Antonio, TX. He then spent several months training in drug detection and patrol functions. Upon graduation, Bak was deployed to South Korea, where he was destined to spend his entire military career. Bak was assigned to the 55th MP Kennel at Camp Casey and became part of the 503rd Military Working Dog Detachment.  Thanks to his impressive nose, Bak became one of the best patrol narcotic detection dogs in the Army. He was truly invaluable during his deployment to the Korean Penisula. In a little over seven years, Bak’s detection work led to more than 20 convictions for drug offenses. Bak, forever in our hearts.




Bak's Legacy: Hero Dogs & Cancer Care




The relationship between a combat dog and the handler is forged on the battle lines, but often extends far beyond the end of military service. The bond is beautiful between them. It is an extraordinary connection.
