Military Dog Picture of the Week. (August 16th, 2012): Honza Bear
Normally I wait and use my unseen pictures for my stories but I couldn’t resist this week.
Let’s hear it for Honza Bear this week!
Well……. why not, right? Let’s admit it folks….you love Honza Bear!
There is just something about this furry yellow goofball that you love.
Does he remind you of your dog or a dog you used to have?
All right…I love Honza Bear as well. I ‘m actually stationed in Virginia at the same Army installation as John and Honza Bear.
But that isn’t the reason I am honoring them today. Here is why.
Last Friday I was sitting at my desk well past six 6:00 PM so I clicked on a message from John. He and Honza had just been blown to the ground by an improvised explosive device buried into the ground in Afghanistan. Last week, without notice or warning, their life almost ended.
But here is the deal…that was yesterday and you can’t dwell on what could have been. They are Soldiers (YES…HONZA IS A SOLDIER!)and even though they just had a near death experience….the mission goes on!
These two fine warriors are still saving lives in Afghanistan today.
So today we Salute John and Honza Bear!
John reads this blog from Afghanistan. He is super helpful answering my questions. Much of the details he provides me are going into my second novel in my Paws on the Ground series.
So please feel free to comment below and send a message to John and Honza Bear!
Please share with us all why you love Honza Bear!
