Tell the Secretary of Defense: Military Dogs Are Veterans, Not Equipment


These dogs lay their life on the line in protecting our troops every day. They have saved thousands of soldiers' lives on the battlefield, and often continue to serve as companions to wounded veterans when they get home. Members of the armed services and the general public all agree -- the heroic Military Working Dogs that serve alongside our troops (and often, ahead of them) are veterans, not equipment.
