Dog who served four tours of duty in Middle East laid to rest

Chris Spags Founder and Editor

This Memorial Day just passed and, while we always honor our soldiers, it’s easy to forget about the canine forces in the army. This video of a dog who served four tours in the Middle East and is now being put down is a sad but important one to watch.

The accompanying article on WQAD features a quote from Freddie the bomb-sniffing golden retriever’s owner, Ryan Anderson, that’s pretty poignant:

“Fellow soldier. Friend. Companion. He’ll never be replaced. I know that.

“As far as I’m concerned, he’s a vet. They’re all vets.”
