Memorial Day ’21: Soldier Dogs – Our 4-Legged Heros

31 May

Today in the United States we observe Memorial Day honoring our fallen heroes from all our wars. (Even one war is too many, I think.)

I am reposting this story from 2012 on Soldier Dogs. Those wonderful animals who were selected to serve our country along side our soldiers and performed, and still perform, an invaluable service to our nation.

From FastCompany:

These are some images from the book Soldier Dogs: The Four-Legged Heros of Iraq and Afghanistan and a quote:

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.

Dogs 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
