After the Abbottabad raid on Osama Bin Laden military dogs began receiving more attention when it was disclosed that the SEAL team brought along a Labrador Retriever to assist them. A recent story in the New York Times reports there are about 2,700 dogs currently serving in the U.S. military, mostly German Shepherds, Malinois’, and Labrador Retrievers. Marine Capt. Manuel Zepeda told the NYT: “We consider the dog another Marine.” The cost of training can run up to $40,000 per dog; they are each given rank, and retired to family homes in the U.S. when they finish their service.  Pretty impressive.  And to honor these dogs we’ve decided to share an awesome photo gallery of them in action.   Enjoy the photos and be sure to click “next” beneath each one to view them all.
