    The service was held on Wednesday morning for the Irish Setter that was trained for the Army in Explosive Detection at Lackland Airforce and later served for the Engineer Canine Company at Fort Leonard Wood.
    A Fort Leonard Wood press release described Tygo as "always steadfast and ready," and a "four-footed warrior."

    Tygo served in Afghanistan under Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force from August to November, 2012.
