PO1 John “Jet Li” Douangdara and his dog “Bart”
John (26) and MWD “Bart” were among 30 American warriors killed in a helicopter crash in the Wardak Providence of Afghanistan on 6 August 2011. John was an amazing young man and very talented dog handler and decoy. His smile was contagious; his passion for his profession and his country was unsurpassed. John’s unit has set up a memorial fund for his family. Donations can be sent to:
