Their training is intense; their working conditions are deplorable; their lives are always on the line; and in at least one case, namely Vietnam, their rewards were non-existent. This profile describes the most innocent and vulnerable of combat veterans-our Nation’s War Dogs.
After most wars, surviving dogs were returned to American soil and given a welcome reserved forheroes. After the Vietnam conflict, this warm reception did not take place.
Sadly, thousands of canine veterans were either killed in battle or left to die in a foreign land.
Let us be able to honor these courageous, loyal canine veterans with a, United States War Dog Commemorative Stamp.
Our Mission has been a success.
Military Working Dog Stamps were first issued on August 1, 2019.
Thank you all for your support.
