Phillip Weitlauf, U.S. Army Veteran
Military War Dogs are an important part of our military. In WWI, they were called Ambulance Dogs and in WWII they were scouts, trackers and messengers, saving 15,000 lives. In Korea, one War Dog Platoon saved thousands of lives. In Vietnam, War Dogs saved more than 10,000 lives — and in Iraq, they detected IEDs and worked in roadside check points. They continue on duty today in Afghanistan with 600 teams deployed, saving lives every day. Military War Dog Ziva will make an appearance at Next!
