For more than 100 years, dogs have fought alongside U.S. soldiers on and off the battlefield, accompanying troops on all their missions from parachute deployment to bomb clearance.

From the Civil War to the War on Terror, dogs role in military missions has remained one of the most intriguingand most effectiveweapons in the arsenal of modern warfare. And while the United States is winding down its involvement in two wars and military funds dwindle, Frankel makes a passionate case for keeping war dog programs as a permanent and well-funded military force.
