This upcoming Saturday, Mike Voorhees, an Army veteran, will give the invocation at the Highground Veterans Memorial for the unveiling of a new memorial to military dogs. Voorhees spent months in the jungles of Vietnam as an Army dog handler and when he returned home from war he became a chaplain.

“I have one distinction no other pastor can say. I can say Satan saved my life at least three times,” said Voorhees. Satan was a highly trained German Shepherd who worked as a scout dog in Vietnam for several years.
