We got some great, clever, and creative dog names, and heartbreaking as well as hilarious stories in the comments/ entries section. Thanks so much to all who participated and shared your story.
In the 172nd Mountain Battalion, Jeremy worked closely with the bomb dogs' handlers, Special Operations, the Air Force, Marines, Navy, Iraqi Security Force, and many other military divisions. Additionally, the 172nd provided security for Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians (EOD).
Finally, a very special thanks to Jeremy and all of his fellow volunteers—past and present—in our American Armed Forces for their honorable service, unparalleled courage, and selfless sacrifice. You all have my utmost eternal thanks, admiration, and respect.
