Wishing all of our friends a happy and safe Memorial Day holiday!
A military dog and his handler on duty in Afghanistan were both injured in an IED blast, but are now recovering together at Walter Reed Medical Center.
Rocky and his handler, Andrew Brown, were deployed out of Fort Hood with the 89th Military Police Brigade. They were injured in the explosion while participating in a search operation of a building.
A photo of Rocky wearing his Purple Heart at the hospital has gone viral, and other pictures show him enjoying some cuddle time with Brown.
Thank you Rocky and Andrew for your service…we wish you both a speedy recovery!
