We brought this to you back in May when this feature first appeared after the bin Laden raid. It is again a perfect time to salute the courageous canines who serve our country (and their buddies) so valiantly. Thanks War Dogs! Here are a couple of my favorite pics, but there’s lots more so click through and enjoy the essay :)

There’s a reason they brought one to get Osama bin Laden.

    I’m glad I checked the blog this morning. These photos are amazing! I’m a cat person, but dogs *definitely* are man’s best friend. Such fearless, loyal comrades in arms. These animals deserve special honors along with their human soldiers.

    These wonderful dogs deserve an enormous amount of credit for just the companionship of having them around not to mention the sacrificial dedication for their masters. God Bless Them!

  3. [...] A big thanks to Tammy Bruce for her retweet of my TB rant. She has a link to a wonderful pictorial essay on War Dogs that is a must-see. [...]

    I second that thanks Tammy! Our government has come a long way from the heartless horror of our abandonment of them in Vietnam–the mere thought of it can drive me to utter sorrow–but probably not as far as we need to be.
    “Dog Tags of Courage” by a Vietnam War Dog Handler John Burnam is a book to read (among others) and there’s a new one out now “The Dogs of War: The Courage, Love, and Loyalty of Military Working Dogs.”

    fyi, Burnam is also President of the John Burnam Monument Foundation to build a national memorial to Military Working Dogs. I know John and he has dedicated his life to speaking and educating people about war dogs, and preserving the memory of these wonderful creatures God gave us. The project has the support some in congress, the DOD, and the Pentagon. I hope the TAMs might visit his site and donate. http://www.jbmf.us
