Nan Siders, your son and IDD Cane are true heroes! Blessed you and them for your sacrifices!
They are true heroes! They are American Officers!
I'm so sorry for your loss Ma'am. RIP Cpl Billy Crouse and IDD Cane xxx
I'm so sorry for your loss. If there is any consolation for you, your son did an honorable tour of duty to give us the freedom we currently have and at least if he had to die, he will not be alone. I'm sure they are both at the side of Jesus Christ. My prayers are with you and your family. I know what it is like to lose family members at war, however, I don't know what it is like to lose a son or daughter. God Bless You.
I can't imagine your pain! Our country is indebted to your son and companion forever! You and your son gave the ultimate for our freedom. Thank you and our hearts and prayers are with you, your son and Cane.
Mr. McCain, shame on you! MWD are not just equipment! Please re-examine your position. The handlers of the MWD and those who have been saved by them certainly do not share your views.
As a veteran... I must say that this is just shameful.
Then again, Congress *treats* human servicemembers like equipment... it comes as no surprise they would actually classify our dogs as equipment, too.
Speaking as someone who considers ALL Soldiers to be my brothers... yes, even the enemy... I have no qualms extending that same sentiment to Military Working Dogs. They may not be human, but they are warriors, too... and when they are done serving, they are veterans, just like us.
Sen McCain, you were an officer, in the military. I expect better of you. But, I guess you really are the sell-out I always suspected you were. Good job helping the disenfranchisement of our veterans, Mr. McCain... you're no brother of mine. You have no Loyalty... no Integrity... no Honor. Might as well have stood next to Kerry, and threw your medals at the White House lawn, as well. Asshole.
I can't believe this guy.
Signed and shared. No, our military dogs are not equipment.
How can we not help these wonderful animals that have helped our sons and daughters,husbands, fathers, .......mothers, sisters...please help our MI?ITARY DOGS!
I've committed to getting 10 friends to sign this petition. Your voice will make a difference. Sign the petition. It is the Will of the People, that our Military Working Dogs be protected. Our soldiers and their partners -- assigned Military Working Dogs are Civil Servants...OUR DOGS ARE NOT 'EQUIPMENT'. OUR DOGS ARE OUR PARTNERS, and shall be treated with the same honour as any other soldier. This is the Will of the People: that our Military Working Dogs receive the same recognition as any other member of our Military.
The THANKS is ALL ours Joe & Sgt Beyco! For Everything you've both done, given and Continue to do for All service members & their Incredible MWD's! This is an OUTRAGE-especially hearing this is the position of a Vietnam war Veteran And POW! Where's Your Loyalty NOW Sen. McCain? These MWD's Deserve their Rightful Place & Honor as the Soldiers they are!
I do not take part nor partake in most of the requests but this one hit home brother now that I am retired who do I need to go talk too.....Please give me a reason...[;please resist arrest!
