Lee to be Remembered at Marine Base

A Georgia military base is naming its kennel in honor of a local Marine canine handler who died in Iraq.

The Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany plans to hold a ceremony later this month to dedicate its kennel to Corporal Dustin Lee.

The 20-year-old Quitman High School graduate died in a rocket attack in Iraq in 2007.

His bomb-sniffing dog, Lex, was adopted by his parents. Lex and the Lees are both expected to be at the ceremony.
