No Ordinary Dog

This program is cancelled.

After U.S. Navy SEALs raided Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound in May 2011, only one of their names was immediately made public: Cairo, a Belgian Malinois and military working dog. In his new book, No Ordinary Dog: My Partner from the SEAL Teams to the Bin Laden Raid, Cairo’s handler Will Chesney shares his story of working alongside Cairo as a member of U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six, and the emotional bond that formed between them, both in the field and at home. This program includes a demonstration by a working dog.

This program is presented in conjunction with the Museum's special exhibition Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden. Presentation of Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden has been made possible with support of presenting sponsors Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. and Palantir Technologies, as well as Lockheed Martin.
