For several years, Rebecca Frankel has been writing a weekly column about War Dogs and their contributions to both Iraq and Afghanistan. Here is a link to her latest installment.
I have for a number of years believed that our military ought to have a way to officially recognize the heroism of these dogs. I also am of the belief that we owe them a great deal and that our nation can afford to care for them when they are no longer able to serve as Military Working Dogs. As soldiers their only fault is they are loyal to a fault and want nothing more than accomplish the job they were trained to do.
