"It's so funny how something as simple as a puppy can make even the hardest, toughened soldier melt upon a few kisses to the face."
"Jet is an 8 year old English springer bomb sniffing dog working with the afghan army.
I am an Army critical care nurse assigned to a forward surgical team in Afghanistan. I met Jet on Sunday, 13 October around 630pm. Without anywhere else to go and no other option, what made sense was to bring him to a medical team. He was in need of life saving interventions as he was fighting for life.
As our medical team is used to treating only humans, I was put in charge of ensuring our team was trained on how to care for a working dog. Without our training, Jet wouldn't have survived according to the Veterinarian, CPT W.
Immediately when he was under my care, my heart melted for him. With many interventions and after a couple of hours before he was transported to the vet, I stood by his side, comforted him, pet him, massaged his ears, and moistened his mouth with water as he lay anxious and sick. We did not know the exact cause of illness but speculate a toxic insect bite or toxic ingestion. "
He will go to NC to live with this Army Nurse. So excited for Jet!!!
Thank You Men and Women for your service to our country. It is because of your dedication that we live in The Land of the Free, Because of the Brave. Paw Salute!
