8/29/2012 - DAYTON, Ohio -- Dogster.com editor/writer Maria Goodavage will present "America's Canine Heroes: The Story of Military Working Dogs" on Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.

During her lecture, Goodavage will look at the four-legged heroes who serve our country, what they bring to the fight, how they do it and the deep bonds they form with those who work with them.

Her longstanding passion for dogs of war started when her dad - also an author - told her about the stray pups (and a wayward monkey) he took in while overseas in World War II, and how military dogs helped save lives and sometimes soldiers' sanity.

Goodavage is the news editor and a featured writer at Say Media's Dogster.com. She has been a reporter for USA Today and the San Francisco Chronicle, is a founding editor of a national guidebook series for dogs, and author of Soldier Dogs: The Untold Story of America's Canine Heroes, The Dog Lover's Companion to California and The Dog Lover's Companion to the San Francisco Bay Area.

This lecture will be held in the museum's Carney Auditorium. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. For more information or handicapped seating arrangements, contact the museum's Special Events Division at (937) 255-1743. Filming or videotaping the lecture is prohibited.
