Soldier, Dog Die On Same Day

Hundreds of mourners lined the main street through a town in England yesterday to honor Lance Corporal Liam Tasker, of the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, who was shot while on patrol in Helmand province, Afghanistan, on March 1. The crowds were swelled by family pets and a dozen police dogs at the repatriation ceremony for the 26-year-old soldier, whose dog Theo died from a seizure three hours after his master was killed. L/Cpl Tasker’s family said they believe the dog died from a broken heart.
