Remembering the Dogs of War

More than 500 U.S. military working dogs are deployed worldwide at any given time.  Read about combat canines and their handlers in Iraq and Afghanistan in this recent National Geographic article.

Major Cpl. John Dolezal poses with CChas, a Belgian Malinois,
at Twentynine Palms in California. Dogs bred at Lackland
Air Force Base in Texas, the military's primary canine
facility, are given names that begin with double letters.
You can adopt a retired military dog. Find answers to frequently asked questions on the official site.
