|In keeping with the Memorial Day Holiday this weekend... Mom ran across this book in her daily Internet wanderings...
“War Dogs: A History of Loyalty and Heroism“ by Michael Lemish.
This book was originally published in 1996 and tells the history of the U.S. K-9 Corps. Now in paperback, War Dogs provides an eye-opening look at unsung canine heroes from World War I to the present. Terriers, shepherds, beagles, collies, huskies, and Dobermans are only a few of the breeds that have pulled sleds, searched caves and bunkers, and even parachuted into combat. Mike has collected true stories and rare photos that reflect the strong bonds that have formed between war dogs and their masters as they worked together in dangerous situations."
Memorial Day is right around the corner, but before you pack your bags and plan your picnics, take a moment to remember the brave men and women who have lost their lives serving the United States of America. Then, take a moment to honor the dogs who serve the country, too.
