The War Dogs of World War II

My newest article for America in WWII magazine is on the war dogs of World War II. I had such fun researching this one and came across a plethora of anecdotes that were a joy to read.

Nearly all of the dogs that served in the war came from civilian families. Owners actually donated their pet dogs to the war effort. That is quite a sacrifice! Yet thousands of Americans did just that. I wonder if such a program would be successful today. Somehow I doubt it.

The issue will be available on newstands and in bookstores February 17.
