They say dogs are a man’s best friend, and it certainly rings true for one slain American military trooper.
RadarOnline.com has obtained touching video footage of the funeral for Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson, who died on August 6 when his helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan, and his beautiful dog Hawkeye lays at his casket.
Tumilson, 38, was a native of Rockford, Iowa, and he was among 30 that perished in what President Barack Obama said was the deadliest incident for coalition forces since the beginning of the Afghan war.
Hawkeye’s fierce loyalty to his owner is a quiet reminder that Tumilson was loved by all those he touched in his life.
