Marcus Luttrell’s book, Lone Survivor, tells the story of his four-member Navy SEAL team. He was the only survivor of a mission into Afghanistan and Pakistan called Operation Redwing. Luttrell retired from the Marines in 2007. In 2009 tragedy struck this decorated soldier. His dog, DASY, was shot dead outside Luttrell’s home. Finally, the men who killed his dog went to trial. Learn the outcome on today’s episode of Bark Radio. ::: Military Working Dogs (MWDs) were long considered property by the military. Thanks to Bill Clinton, that changed in 2000. However, more change is needed. Toward that end, two members of the U.S. House of Representatives recently introduced H.R. 4103/2134: the Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act. Help make this bill a reality by writing or calling your representative and senators and ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 4103. Do it for the dogs. And do it for their handlers.
