Flowers Adorn Cpl. Megan Leavey and K9 Rex Statue

HAVERSTRAW, NY –  Megan Leavey and K9 Rex Statue at the Rockland County Gulf War/War on Terror Monument at Haverstraw Bay Park.

Huge shoutout to the individual who put flowers in Cpl. Megan Leavey’s hand.

Cpl. Megan Leavey of Valley Cottage and German shepherd Sgt. Rex were wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2006. They spent two six-month tours together and completed more than 100 missions.

The story of their service and Leavey’s fight to keep Rex after returning to the U.S. was told in a 2017 movie starring Kate Mara as Leavey. She successfully battled military red tape to bring home Rex, who passed away in December 2012.

We also recommend visiting the Rockland County Gulf War/War on Terror Monument located at 21 Gagan Road, Haverstraw. It is in honor of all those who served in the Gulf War and the War on Terror, and for those Rockland County residents that made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Please comment if you know who decorated the statue and we would love to give them credit.
