This month's issue of National Geographic, features a U.S. War Dog - hero "Layka" - and her touching story of being a K9 soldier "...shot four times at point blank range..." while on duty in Afghanistan, and how she saved the life of her handler, Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald, and their team. it also tells of how Staff Sgt. McDonald fought to adopt Layka and bring home - his friend, his partner, his protector.

This blog post is dedicated to my Dad, TSGT E. Larry Wills, a great animal lover who passed away in May 1974. He proudly served with the US Army's First Division "Big Red One" and a second tour with the Rainbow Division, 16th infantry medical detachment. Pictured here he is with two of his canine companions on base.
