Retired U.S. Marines Sgt. Canvas was put to sleep Friday, June 19, after suffering injuries sustained in Afghanistan that ultimately led to her inability to walk.

She was given a hero’s farewell.

In memory of a K-9 who gave so much to her family and her handler, the service will take place at 10 a.m. in Eagle Park at Turner’s Pond Friday, June 10. The Patriot Guard Riders will once again gather in Dixie Inn at 9 a.m. in preparation to escort Retired U.S. Marines Cpl. James Russell Moseley and the ashes of his beloved partner to Turner’s Pond.

Moseley’s aunt,
