(WHAS11) -- A memorial ride is set today to honor a decorated military K-9 who lost a battle with cancer last month.

Sergeant Beyco was born in Germany and served two tours in Iraq between 2005 and 2008.

She's credited with finding many weapons, IEDs, and ammunition.

Her handlers say no one was ever killed or even hurt on her watch.

Beyco retired in 2011 and was adopted by Vietnam veteran Joe Sturm here in Louisville.

This afternoon, the Kentucky Patriot Guard riders will be escorting Beyco to VFW Post 1170 in Middletown. They'll start at the Bluegrass Harley-Davidson on Gateworth Way just after 1.
