Memorial Day ’14: Soldier Dogs – The 4-Legged Heros

26 May

Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America.

 

I repost this story every year, because soldier dogs are truly amazing heros.

These are some of my favorite images from the new book Soldier Dogs. There are more pictures in our slideshow today.

Military Working Dogs play a crucial part in America’s armed services. The best known “Soldier Dog,” Cairo, put crucial canine skills to work in the SEAL Team Six operation that killed Osama Bin Laden. Other Military Working Dogs serve as everything from bomb sniffers to troop companions to search and rescue dogs (and also serve in darker roles, such as duty at Guantanamo Bay). Their handlers and trainers, devoted dog lovers down to a man, form an unusually close-knit fraternity within the military.

Dog are not only our best friends, they are an incredible asset to our safety forces.  Thank you to all the handlers and animals that keep us safe around the world.  – DogDaz

    Well done, they are heros and they deserve it that we remember all soldier dogs today too. Have a good Memorial Monday.

    A former neighbor of ours training bomb sniffing dogs for the military over in Afghanistan. He brought a couple of them home when they retired. Great dogs!

      That is great. I think we need to honor all our furry troops.
