WELL OVER 30,000 MILITARY WORKING DOGS HAVE SERVED SINCE WWII. MANY DIED SAVING AMERICAN TROOPS. DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S DOCUMENTARY "WAR DOGS" ESTIMATED OVER 10,000 AMERICAN LIVES WERE SAVED IN VIETNAM BY OUR K9 SOLDIERS
In Vietnam, nearly 300 Military Working Dogs were killed in action. In Iraq and Afghanistan, 10 MWDs have been killed in action in past ten years. Help Honor Them!
AS OF SEPT. 10, 2011:
Seeking a US Postal Commemorative Stamp: In 1996 Historian Mike Lemish first requested through the proper channels a War Dog Stamp honoring all military working dogs. Since then, theStamp Advisory Comm. has approved dozens of Postal Stamps honoring all our nation's corporate cartoon characters but still no stamp for our K9 heroes that have saved thousands of American lives since WWII. Tens of thousands of names on stamp petitions have been turned in with no results. PLEASE! Call your Senators and House members...asking WHY does our Postal Service issue stamps for dozens of corporate cartoon characters and simplistic causes but not a single stamp for our Military Working Dogs who sacrificed their blood and lives on the same battlefields our troops served in.
DEMAND THAT WE HONOR THE WAR DOGS. CONTACT ANY IMPORTANT HIGH PROFILE PERSON THAT CAN HELP. PETITIONS HAVE NOT WORKED. THIS WILL TAKE A COMBINED EFFORT FINDING THE SINGLE IMPORTANT VOICE FOR THE DOGS...THAT CAN GET THE ATTENTION OF THE CITIZENS STAMP ADVISORY COMMITTEE
