Military Dog Video of the Week(August 9th, 2012): K9 Healers
This video is fabulous because it brings attention to a truly unheralded unit on the battlefield….our military Veterinarian Corps! This is the muscle and brains that keep our dog teams functioning and operating at a high level. It is because of these great American’s that our dog teams are on the front lines protecting our troops!
This is exactly why the heroine in my novel, Megan Jayburn, is a veterinarian technician. I’ve mentioned this kick ass character before in my first Women in Combat Post. (Boy did that post and the subsequent posts on that topic receive a lot of attention!)
My third post had 2,400 hits in the first day! I remember that day because it was the day we brought our baby boy Brady home from the hospital! But I digress…….
In Paws on the Ground, Megan, is assigned to the veterinarian clinic mentioned in this video! How cool is that?
No you won’t see Megan in this video. But the folks in this video are essential cogs in the military machine!
Cheers to our Veterinarian Corps!
