Dogs Have Been Involved in US Military Operations Since 1942

“There’s no other job that’s going to allow you to play with dogs all day,” said Staff Sgt. Lance Brennan, a military working dog handler at Vance Air Force Base. However, calling it “play” may be a bit of a misnomer, as handlers train with their dogs in both patrol work and detection.
