US War Dogs

Walking through the VA with Skyy on Saturday I noticed a collage of 3 photos hanging on the wall dedicated to the working dogs of the US Armed Forces. These are canines that neither Skyy nor I would want to tangle.

I recall watching the movie “Megan Leavy” a few months back, based on the true-life story of a young Marine corporal whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. How difficult must it be for these men and women whose lives rely so much on a furry companion to give them up when they retire.¬† I don’t think I could do that.

A quick search on the internet and I found the following website: https://www.uswardogs.org. There are some incredible stories on this site that tells the tale of these fantastic soldiers and the training, discipline, and dedication they give to these magnificent animals.

As always:

Thank you for your service!

Dan and Skyy
