Remembering Vera

(3) K-3 Coast Guard servicemen adopt a small puppy named Vera and successfully hide her on base. When an emergency occurs, Vera comes out of hiding to assist in the rescue mission, winning over the stern commander. The dog's valor and skill in continued service earn her a military honor guard burial upon her death. Polacco's illustrations and notes enhance the heartwarming narrative, inspired by true events.
