The House Veterans Affairs Committee is honoring dogs that worked in Iraq, as well as at the Pentagon and the World Trade Center during the 9/11.
They're the winners of the first-ever American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards. The recipients include Roselle, a seeing-eye dog that led its handler, Michael Hingson, down 78 flights of stairs in the burning World Trade Center on Sept. 11. Another honoree is a dog that served in Iraq and now helps comfort soldiers with post-traumatic stress disorder.
The four-legged furries will be visiting the office today.
