And stories about stories about military dogs or dogs and military personnel. I don't like to hear about brave dogs being KIA or WIA, any more than those of living souls. These are, sadly, the reality of war.
This is from the story about Layka...
"A Belgian Malinois became the first
military working dog honored by the 341st Training Squadron for her
heroic actions while assigned to a U.S. Special Forces unit in
Layka, an almost 3-year-old female, was recognized Sept. 12 at Joint
Base San Antonio - Lackland, Texas, for saving several Coalition Forces
team members during a June 4 special operations mission."
This is the only picture I could find of the ceremony. Wish it didn't look like she's in pain and wearing the muzzle. I doubt, though, that she's bogged down with vanity.
