Military Working Dogs serve long, useful careers, working for the Department of Defense for at least 10-12 years.  Before 2000, when it came time to retire, most of the dogs were euthanized.  Fortunately with "Robby's Law" that was passed on November 6, 2000, retired military dogs can be adopted out.  Now hundreds of dogs are adopted out of Lackland Air Force base in Texas each year.  Some are retired because of age or health reasons, and others because they couldn't obtain or maintain their certifications.  The dogs must maintain a 95% rate of accuracy in order to be used in service. Handlers Adopt First Adoption dibs go first to the most recent handler.  Such a strong bond is created between the dog and ... Read more

After watching the "Meet The Warriors" videos, it's given me a renewed respect for our military men and women.  It is an extreme sacrifice for people to serve in the U.S. military and when they return home, they cannot simply leave combat behind and pick up where they left off.  The invisible wounds of war are something that makes returning to civilian life a whole different challenge.  Men and women return home after having seen and experienced horrific things.  These things stay with them and it takes time and compassion for healing. A code of honor.  No one gets left behind. One thing that touched me most (especially Justin's, Josh's, & William's story) was the fact that these ... Read more
