We discussed the subject for a short while and then I told him, "I don't know very much about military dogs." "No problem! I can tell you a lot, for instance, dogs have been valuable in saving people's lives throughout history going all the way back to the Egyptians, the Greeks, Romans and many other civilizations." He continued, "Dogs served as sentries to alert people, taken on patrols, and into battles.

And my Dad told me that during WWI, about a million dogs were killed Vets Voices, Page 10 LEC C LIC #738968 24 HOUR SERVICE CALLS RESIDENTIAL. COMMERCIAL.
