An Afghan Puppy Gets a Free Ride from a U.S. Marine

I usually try to share the Military Working Dog photo of the week produced by writer Kevin Hanrahan.

Well instead of a military working dog – here’s a photo of the military working for the dog, or puppy in this case.

I believe I have seen this photo on Kevin Hanrahan’s blog, but it is now making the rounds being share of active duty units. I just saw it posted by CENTCOM.

This puppy followed U.S. Marines from Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, during a mission while the unit was serving in Afghanistan. After following the Marines for many miles, a soft-hearted Marine picked the puppy up and carried it in his drop pouch. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Charles T. Mabry II)

  1. Tenderness for a marine done by a puppy, by a dog that shoud be, tomorrow, a dog warrior, on any case a friend, a very friend. A friend that give his company to a warrior on a zone of war, doning the sensation of family love to who is deployed. thanks, puppy. claudio alpaca

  2. this puppy is so cute 🙂

  3. I can not express how much I respect these soldiers, to have the bravery to protect & fight for freedom, to be so well trained they can operate as a well oiled machine. Yet to have a heart that is soft enough to have compassion for a cute little puppy with tired legs who has been following them. RESPECT!
