Default Military Dogs are no longer classifed as "equipment"

It is about time. Congress has finally changed the law. They passed the Canine Member of the Armed Service Act. It still needs to be signed by the President but once done then MWDs will no longer declared "equipment". They will be declared as military vets and will be returned to Lackland AFB to be adopted out if they retire overseas. This is GREAT news of the MWDs of this country!!

This is a short article but unfortunately this doesn't seem to be getting to much press, certainly not what it deserves.
