We have all seen the videos of
when they arrive back in the U.S.And while this is a tremendous step forward for our dogs in the military, it is also incredibly important for the men and women who handled these dogs. Unlike the man in the video above, oftentimes soldiers would be deprived a life alongside the canine that kept them safe during their time at war. That can be heartbreaking for both the soldier and the dog.
Now, thanks to this legislation, these soldiers cannot be refused that right.The bill still needs to be signed by President Obama, but after making it’s way through the Senate and the House with flying colors, this new law is all but assured.
Our thanks go out to Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Congressman Frank LoBiando (R-NJ) for introducing this bill and championing its cause. Soon, every dog that puts their life on the line to protect our soldiers will be guaranteed the ability to return home, and to return to a home full of people eternally grateful for their service.
