See if you can keep your eyes from welling up after reading this story of a fallen Navy Seal and his best friend.

U.S. Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson‘s Labrador retriever led the procession of mourners into the gym, last week. Then the faithful best friend lay at the foot of the casket through the whole service, bringing tears to the eyes of everyone in attendance.

Tumilson was one of the 30 Americans killed in that helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6th. Jon’s cousin, Lisa, said she hadn’t planned to take pictures during the service, but she couldn’t resist taking this one.

Hawkeye will now live with Jon’s best friend.  I should say “other” best friend.
