On the Saturday special show of Huckabee, he had on a very special guest who was also a hero during the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks at ground zero: search and rescue K9 Kaiser and his handler Tony Zintsmaster from Indiana.
Kaiser spent 10 days on the pile, and is only one of a dozen or so search and rescue K9s who are still around today. Kaiser was injured during a building search of WTC Building 7, but came out with an eager attitude to keep going, even though he was bleeding from that wound he received inside the building.
Kaiser is just one of many of the unsung heroes that day that helped find the remains of the dead, although he would have preferred to have found the ones who were still alive yet needing rescue. Although the human heroes will always be in our thoughts and prayers, we must never forget the K9 companions who helped their handlers do their job, often at great risk of their own well-being.
