Hawkeye did not leave his master’s side, even during funeral services for the fallen soldier. Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson was recently laid to rest after his life abruptly ended along with 29 other American service members in a Chinook helicopter crash earlier this month in Afghanistan.

Hawkeye was Jon’s best friend according to family, and this loyal chocolate Labrador Retriever remained by his masters side during the funeral services held in Iowa.
