No Buddy Gets Left Behind

October 20, 2008

I’m a firm believer that pets contribute to your personal well being.

I’ve read a few stories here and there about soldiers who have worked hard to get companion animals back to the U.S. from Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s not an easy process. Sad, because I know these animals really meant a lot to these people.

Today, I read about a soldier and Ratchet, the dog that helped her make it through her 13-month deployment. Ratchet is on his way to the U.S. thanks to many, including Operation Baghdad Pups. They help transport unit mascots and soldiers’ companion animals to the U.S. Very good work.
