Petty Officer Jon Tumilson was one of 22 Navy SEALS who were killed when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan earlier this month. A total of 38 people were killed. Tumilson was laid to rest last Friday in Iowa. Making the ceremony even more heartbreaking was the sight of Tumilson’s loyal labrador retriever guarding the flag-draped coffin. The dog refused to leave his master’s side even in death. Tumlinson’s cousin Lisa Pembleton took the photo and posted it on her Facebook page. “I felt compelled to take one photo to share with family members that couldn’t make it or couldn’t see what I could from the aisle,” she said.
