House Resolution 9152, the “Sgt. Fieldy Act,” would allow military dogs to be buried at any of the 155 veterans’ cemeteries managed by the Department of Veterans Affairs’ National Cemetery Administration. The bill, named for a Labrador retriever who is credited with multiple lives saved during his three tours in Afghanistan, was introduced by Rep. Vicente Gonzalez and has been referred to the House Committee on Veteran’s Affairs.
