Memorial Day ’15: Always Remember the Fallen

25 May

Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America

I repost this story every year, because soldier dogs are truly amazing heros and we must always honor our troops and our service animals and all the fallen spirits that have been taken, for oh, too many reasons. Take a moment, right now, just a few seconds, and be thankful for the wonderful service people that work so hard to stop some really terrible things from happening around the world.

Look at these faces!


These are some of my favorite images from the 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.
