My BIL's son served in Afghanistan a few years ago. He and his unit befriended a couple of dogs who were brought here to the US through a British animal rescue group. Oreo is living with my BIL now, due to bitch agression problems with Brownie, and Brownie is living with his other son and his family. They're been in the US for a year now.
Here's the website link for Oreo and Brownie and their rescue group, Nowzad Dogs.
MY BIL just sent us this link to another article about rescuing dogs and cats from Iraq. In this case it is the SPCA International.
I just thought I'd share. It's something people don't usually think about when they think about Afghanistan and Iraq.
