Today is K9 Veterans Day. A day to say thank you to all of the brave dogs who have dedicated their lives to protect and serve.

At Newport Harbor Animal Hospital we are proud to remember ‘Oki’ today. Oki was the third most decorated dog in World War II. We are very proud to tell you he is buried on our grounds.
His story is one of bravery and courage. What really hits home about Oki is that along with his owner, Robert Harr, they are the shining example of the human animal bond.


Oki was assigned to Robert and another marine on a demolition team. He was trained to detect the enemy as they moved through the jungle in Okinawa. He warned Bob of trouble by silently pressing into his leg. A situation developed that resulted in one hundred and fifty marines being trapped behind enemy lines. Oki had their location attached to his collar and managed after being shot to deliver their location to the troops waiting on shore and no lives were lost. He later lost part of his jaw due to a machete wound.


During this time the military dogs were normally euthanized at the end of their service. Robert and his friends had another plan in mind. They arranged passage home for Oki. He made it back to New Jersey and after being reunited with Robert he was demilitarized over a nine month period. Oki and Bob were invited to the white house to be decorated by President Harry Truman.


As you walk into Newport Harbor we encourage you to take a moment to thank Oki and see his picture posted in the lobby along with his story. We thank him and Robert Harr today for their brave service!
