oin us for this Special Edition of the C4LDRT Responder Radio Show as we visit with Nona Kilgore Bauer.

Nona Kilgore Bauer is the author of two dozen books on dogs, but Dog Heroes of September 11th, a Tribute to America's Search and Rescue Dogs changed her life. "When the handlers shared their 9/11 experiences with me, and beyond that, their total dedication to their country ... and their dogs ... training at their own expense, most of them for years in order to be ready 'just in case,' recognizing their work became, and continues to be, my 'writing mission,'" Bauer says. "I believe that America needed to know about the contributions these dogs and their handlers made to the families of the victims. Without them, hundreds of families would not have closure after losing their loved ones. That contribution is priceless. I am still awed by what they did, and feel privileged that I was able to record their stories. They truly have added another dimension to my life."

As we broadcast live from the Bensenville Public Library in Bensenville, Illinois with "Reno", C4LDRT's own K-9 hero, we'll talk about courage, the heroes of 9-11 and their handlers.
