The fate of military dogs - did anyone know about this? [View all]



On January 2, 2013, President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act for FY2013 (H.R. 4310) THAT DECLARES THAT OUR MILITARY WORKING DOGS OF ALL BREEDS WILL NO LONGER BE CLASSIFIED AS "MILITARY EQUIPMENT" TO BE LEFT BEHIND IN FOREIGN LANDS...BUT AS MILITARY VETERANS. THESE DOGS NOW WILL BE RETURNING TO LACKLAND AFB IN SAN ANTONIO TEXAS FOR THEIR SERVICES AS US HEROES. THEY WILL BE EVALUATED, AND RETRAINED AND RE-HOMED IF NEEDED. Finally getting the treatment they deserve. They don't deserve to serve our country and get left behind.

I didn't know this.

I can't imagine the circumstances of the photograph. Actually, I *can* imagine it. I just don't want to.
