Remembrance Wiens and Cooper

February 25, 2008

Kory Duane Wiens of Independence Oregon, trained a mine sniffing dog; Cooper. Both of them were deployed to Iraq. He wrote “Having a lot of fun, hard to believe huh? Well, I have Cooper with me so everything is alright.” He told the Army Public Affairs “I got to teach him all the things he knows today,” Wiens said. “Seeing him out there working is very rewarding. It’s amazing to see how far he’s come.”

His friends remember him as a caring person who was always ready to help.


He died July 7th 2007 with his service dog Cooper.
