University of Iowa will honor fallen SEAL Jon Tumilson

Iowa = University of Iowa. Hawkeye was the dog’s name, and is the name of the sports teams at the University of Iowa. He was the dog laying by the coffin at Tumilson’s funeral. There is talk of the dog leading the team onto the field. I would bet that Hawkeye will be at a lot of UofI events in the months to come.

Here is the video of the funeral: The Blaze: Heart-Wrenching Image: Dog Keeps Watch Over Fallen SEAL’s Casket During Funeral

As an Iowa State fan, I must take my hat off to this idea, and applaud the decision of the arch rival of my team. Good job, Iowa! (Yes, it hurt to say that)

Edit: added Gazette Article: UI to honor Tumilson, all fallen public servants at home football game in November
